Friday Bonus—Wanna See Something Cool?

Miniature German Village — Epcot
I want everybody to try this cool"tilt-shift" effect (fake miniature photography)!


To get started, you'll need to run out and buy Photoshop CS (Creative Suite) for about $650.  If you already have Photoshop, you can buy an upgrade for less than $200.  http://amzn.to/i6kdGO

I'll wait...Meanwhile, watch this amazing vid!  On the You Tube menu, set the resolution to 720HD, then click the full-screen setting (it looks like a bunch of arrows in a box).  These are real pix of Epcot using the tilt-shift effect.
