If you use a slightly narrower aperture you will get a smoother transition to out of focus areas. I have a set here amongst others on my site:

You might find you need to start using grad filters too because out of focus elements can easily be blown using tilt lenses.

russ,

thanks very much for the link, and the tip. I had a look through your site - these images are truly exceptional, and i'm not even really a landscape style photographer, but can really appreciate your photos. Can I ask a few questions please - how narrow generally are you going on the aperture? Are you going as far as max tilt, and which of the ts-e lenses are you using in your shots? Thanks again!
