I've posted before about miniature art that's disconcertingly real, or that makes use of optical illusion to great effect. Well here's a twist that turns that whole thing on its head: tilt-shift photography. It's a unique art that uses camera lenses and Photoshop to make life-size locations or subjects look like miniature models. A shallow depth of field and high color saturation are key to creating the illusion.
