I get such a strong impression of miniaturization with images like these. I find it fascinating that my brain processes images so differently with the addition of a bit of blur.

So I love the effect and agree with Zemlin regarding the strong impression of miniaturization. I would like to understand how it is done? Is it the addition of blur that causes this sense of miniaturization? How do you get it?

My family and I travel all over the world so photography was a logical way to capture the wonder of the places we go.
The lifestyle requires sacrifices such as not having friends or family near us. This is why Photocamel is so wonderful.
It lets me keep friendly photographers with me everywhere I go!

Amazing isn't it, guess it's just because we are so used to seeing it on minature images.

Sure no probs, it's pretty easy, 1st select a photo, things viewed from above work best, as that's how you normally view models.
Create a second layer and gausian blur to the amount you think will suit.
Using a large eraser with 100% softness erase a straight line which is going to be your main DOF.
Lastly making the eraser progressively delete all the parts you want in focus.

Great thanks! I need to get PS or Elements to have the ability to layer....maybe I should just break down and get Elements. This might be the thing that pushes me over the edge.

If you don't have Elements, you can use tiltshiftmaker.com - Transform your photos into tilt-shift style miniatures too...
