Default Tilt shift

Hi all, I took and older photo and tried my first attempt at tilt shift meaning I attempted to make it look like a miniature setting. Taken from the top of the Lewiston grade in Idaho.
Thanks for looking.

Very different look. Had to Google Tilt-Shift to learn more.

This is a very cool effect. Did you do this in Photoshop?

It's an interesting effect. I'm trying to figure out exactly why it makes the image look like a miniature.....

Nice one wagaboo. I've tried this a couple of times - it's tricky. You started with a good photo that was taken from very high and had no tall buildings, trees etc. in the way. Well done

Thanks again and actually its pretty easy with that plugin and yes I bumped up the saturation just a bit.
Saly it's the Bokeh effect and focusing that does it.
