Using the Tilt Shift Effect in Photoshop to Create a Miniature City

This video by photographer Anthony Morganti shows how to use a tilt shift feature in Photoshop to create miniature effect.

Morganti explains how the lines in the effect works as well as how to set the options in the filter to get the desired look that you want. One of the interesting things that you can do is create tilt shift effects which are completely  impossible with physical tilt shift lenses.
