<<<< Mini-Challenge >>>> #322: "Tilt-shift/Miniature Faking"

The theme of this Mini Challenge is "Tilt-shift/Miniature Faking".

Taken by any gear, techniques and tricks: post processing software, special effects, filters, etc. The limit is your personal skill and your own creativity, everything is valid for achieving Tilt-shift/Miniature faking photos.

Rather than just show off images, please also tell us about the stories behind the images. Why, where and how they were taken, troubles involved, solutions, post processing applied, etc. and anything you like that adds to what might otherwise be just another photo. The image is there to tell a synthesis of its story and/or to illustrate the best of a real-world water event.

Contest entries are limited to three photos but please feel free to post unlimited numbers of photos noted as "Exhibition". The more photos the better, and in order of always learning and enhancing ourselves, besides cheers and bells, constructive critics and suggestions are, more than welcome, desirables (extra points are given for actively sharing our knowledge with others) and even good taste jokes for adding fun and dynamism to this contest.

Here are a few examples, just for illustrating but not limiting your creativity:

The Winner Sets up a NEW Mini-Challenge!!!

(Second place takes the baton if the Winner could or would not host the next one)

Enter Exhibition in header if you don't want to be voted on or chosen as the Winner!

Rules (general rules from past competitions):

1) Enter up to three photos from any camera taken at any time. Let us know about equipment, settings and processing if you like. A good title and a little context about what was happening when the image was captured. We’re interested in the story behind the picture, not just the image.

2) 3rd, 2nd, and Winners will be chosen. The winner chooses the next mini challenge theme and selects the next winner and so on. . .

3) Please post your entries by replying to this original post rather than under someone else’s post - and change the subject line to the title(s) of your images or something like that to separate your picture posts from comments that someone may make about your post.

4) As usual, exhibition entries are welcome, if you have interesting images to share beyond your three entries, or should you feel you are not able to host the challenge in the event that you win. Please be sure to clearly state if entries are exhibition only.

5) All entrants should check the results of the challenge and be ready to jump in with the next competition if they are the winner.

6) PLEASE feel free to make as many comments as possible. This adds to the fun and keeps people coming back. Lets make this a record number of entries.

7) The contest starts now and ends on Dec. 27 at 1000 UTC (ie, 2am Pacific time).

8) The Winner Sets up a NEW Mini-Challenge!-
