    By using either a tilt-shift lens, a DIY option such as a toilet-plunger tilt-shift, or one of many software solutions, create your own photo that looks like a miniature set, but isn’t.

    I missed this one over on the themes forum. Looks totally cool. Thanks soosh.

    /btw – there are some links over there that might help.

    Would a Lensbabies be considered a tilt-shift lens for this contest?

    I think the real question would be less about whether the lens itself would be considered t/s but rather whether you can get a t/s fake miniature result from it or the software you use or some combination of the two. If the end result is an image that looks like it’s a miniature set even though it isn’t, then I’d say it’s fair game.

    all the google hits for software use CS2 or latter. looked at my copy of PS7 but didn’t find a “lens blur” option. that could be due to not knowing all the features.

    and my gimping skills are none too good either. may have to pass.

    you can do them online here: http://tiltshiftmaker.com/

    also, lens blur should be located under filters in PS7

    saw the online thing, thanks.

    filter/blur>blur, blur more, gaussian, motion, radial, smart.

    nope, no lens blur. lens flare yes. PS7 seems to lack a lot but given my limited needs and the cost to me i’m not complaining.

    well, you can select an area of the scene, feather it out, and then just apply gaussian to that area. or look for diffuse glow, if that’s available.

    thanks but given what i have to do this week i may pass rather than take the time to PS my shots.

    i have a crown graphic 4×5 but no means to process the resulting negs (or positives as the case may be) which i’d dearly like to use again. and i’m also not sure that it would produce the effects this contest aims at.

    Tilt-shift meets wide-angle. It’s really hard to get a good DoF at wide-angle even with tilt-shift.

    I try to shoot realistic/natural (no special effects in post). but I’m not really feeling the effect with these shots:

    For what it’s worth… I like them, especially the first two.

    I’ll second that. Have you been using the tilt-shift website or doing everything manually in photoshop/gimp? I think I’ve been getting better results with the tilt-shift website than through gimp, but that could just be because I haven’t gotten the process for this in gimp down all that well yet.
