Seattle Tacoma International Airport

Processed using a fake tilt shift technique. I think it's called "tilt shift" in reference to a bellows camera taking a macro photograph of a model. Picture links to 1000x665 pixel version.

Awesome job, Luke! Very good composition, and I love the tilt shift effect.

is it gauche if I say I had to squint to make sure the people weren't toys?

Not at all gauche. Even after reading how to do it, seeing a number of before and after shots, knowing how it's done, I still get fooled by it. Yeah!

And thanks!

Splendid! Really excellent - I still keep wondering what model-maker had been brave enough to choose such realistic poses and talented enough to sculpt them. (Pull the other leg - it's got bells on it! Thanks for the fun mind-play!)

Not a macro technique, rather an effect acheived by tilting the film plane in relation to the lens. Explanation of tilt and shift and other view camera techniques here.
