Well, I don't have this whole tilt-shift technique down pat, but I'm having lots of fun playing with it... (You can read more about tilt-shift photography, and my attempts to replicate it in my previous post here- basically it involves using a special camera lens to take quasi-aerial photographs that make the scene look like a scale model. The 'fake' version uses Photoshop to get the same effect. I'm not that great, but it's fun!)
Here are a few of my original photos, all taken in Hong Kong in January:
And here's the results of my first attempt at some tilt-shift Photoshopping- right and below:

Of course, I couldn't leave well enough alone, especially since these examples aren't exactly earth shattering. So, I decided to add something unique to each one, hoping for a totally new concept, and voila, here are the results!
