Had a quick go with what I could find on my puter. Doesn't look as good as what's been posted though.

^ Wow that stuff is epic!! Metal Heart is especially good, but the scenes with the helicopter in that one are just surreal :p

Those videos were way cool, but I'm pretty sure buddy was actually using a t/s lens.

Kinda doesn't work when you don't do it at a correct angle. Now it just looks like you shot it at a wider aperture.

It's a 1/8 scale railway, the camera was pretty much on the ground. Big faking a mini while mini faking.

/getting a different angle just for you IcePrincess :p

edit: meh

and if you're wondering, it's just the track because giant people riding the trains spoils the mininess.

I've just finished my video guide for creating tilt shift.
It follows the same steps and technique as the written guide but it's hopefully a bit easier to follow.

Enjoy...

Thx for posting this technique! I found it over a year ago, and it was totally easy! Here's my most recent go at it:

I'm going to bump this so I remember to post up Zeeal's Patented Way To Do This In Photoshop Elements 8 because PSE doesn't have Quick Mash.

I've done a couple... this one came out particularly well, I think:

And these two look really good when printed; not sure what people think when they're not:

Also, a question: I use a gaussien blur, not a lens blur. Would my pictures look better with a lens blur? And I'm only using a value of 8, whereas some people said they're using values of 25. Would MORE blur help me images, or is my blur good to go?

Lens blur is closer to the blur from a lens. And lens blur lets you use a mask to control the amount of blur across the image.
