The Tilt-Shift blur effect

And tilt shift lenses have been around for quite a while used primarily for architectural photography. But recently, they've started to get increasing use for an interesting creative effect, that sort of produces a miniaturization of the scene that you photograph. Generally speaking, this effect works best when you have a relatively large overview scene to work with. This is a good example here. We've got a beach scene viewed from above with a pier going off in the distance. And so, with this image, I'll create a Tilt Shift Blur effect that really makes this scene seem like a miniature model rather than a real-life scene.

I'll go ahead and create a copy of the Background Image layer first, by dragging that layer down to the Create New Layer button at the bottom of the Layers panel. And then I'll go to the Filter menu an choose Blur, followed by Tilt Shift. That will bring up the Tilt Shift Blur controls on the Blur tools panel over on the right hand side...
