 its a type of focus, i have seen it done in video and it seems that everyone is miniatures
  • + 60
 Its called depth of field.. You use a small appeture like 3.5 to get a small depth of field like in this picture
  • + 43
 it makes it seem like its really small like a model say. nice pic anyway
  • + 20
 Really nice photo! Love the way the out of focus house is pushed to the background and the rider, ramp, and truck are super clear and really stand out.
  • + 13
 love the focus and the clean lines poddd i say Big Grin !
  • + 45
 It is all in proportion only thing that is different is the Depth of field nothing else is changed...i will upload original to show difference.

 Tilt shift photos only have a small part of the picture in focus.
It just looks strange because of the perspective / size of the objects

 Is it a mini truck like a 1:16 scale S-10 or is it real cuz im tripping out lol. Sooo sick tho!

 no. it's real. if you look at the driveway, you can see the focus range. but i agree it looks fake.

 The S10 makes this photo even better.

 Great use of tilt-shift. Very crisp too, definately has pod potential

 It looks like model cars, wtf. Its crazy but sick.
  • + 7
 This Isn't a tilt shift lens. and it isn't natural blur from a low Aperture.

It is unnatural (i.e. done in photoshop) and was probably (over)done with a program like "Alien Skin Bokeh"

 scratch that. it looks like it might just be a Gausian Blur

  • + 2
 im not 100% sure about this photo but i think its photoshopped cuz the guy all around him is blurred then he just blurred the background to make it look better and that truck does look photoshopped, or its just real and epic as shit!
  • + 1
 Nope Never heard of a site, just old fashion experience..been using Photoshop for a long time, and all the photos are shot with a Nikon D70 which helps a lot. I thought i would have some fun with Photoshop and give props to all the local talent in my neighborhood. Thanks for comments
  • + 1
 the fact that it messes with your eyes is what makes it so cool!
  • + 1
 Cool photo, but it is NOT tilt shift... Tilt/shift refers to a LENS(or a lens movement on a view camera) not a plug-in for photoshop. If this was done in camera, why is the whole truck tack sharp, then the landing ramp is just as out of focus as the roof of the house? Optics just don't work that way! Read up on how a large format camera works and it should all come together...

That said, cool photo!
  • + 1
 Great photo! I'm not a dirtjumper but I love this shot. Shrinking the depth of field really brings great emphasis to the subject. For me it really stops time! Thanks for sharing.

 it is real, they just used a really good focal range on it, makes it looked all effed and miniature because your mind can't see what is in the background, so you can't focus on anything but the rider and the jump. and because the truck looks so small (because of the parked angle) against the house, it brings down the scale of the rider and everything.
  • + 1
 TILT SHIFT! It's a tilt shift photo... Only the lower 3rd is in complete focus, which makes the rest look small.
  • + 1
 regardless of the angle, no photo technique can make the nearby truck look smaller than the SUV in the driveway - the depth of field is totally inaccurate.
  • + 2
 Dotca it is what we call a fake tilt shift. It is created with photoshop most of the time. It's a real photo. I've done one like this before. A real tilt shift though would have had the bottom of the photo also out of focus.

Good try though. the effect is good minus a few editing errors like the front of the truck. To get a better effect "more natural" use a wide gradient tool, the one that ads a gradient to both side though. You will get a better effect and smoother transition between the out of focus and the in focus.
  • + 1
 Oh I know it is fake... As in, edited in, but it is still a 'tilt-shift' photo, getting the same effect, to a degree...
  • + 1
 photo-shopped

 yeah this really looks like a fake I don't like the pic!

 if you look at the other pics of the album you will see it is not fake at all. Even have shots of the same rider doing different tricks...
  • + 0
 just a gausian blur added to drop the back ground further out of focus?

as for Pseudo tilt shifts, alot of it has to do with where you are standing and the angle your camera is.
  • + 0
 Hey Xlien quick question. I know how the low f-stop business works and all that, but did you edit this too? Because it seems that the lines around the truck are too sharp. You did selective blurring right?

 Yea, and RGB curves and increased the contrast and adjusted the exposure...
