Does this type of editing/style have a name to it?

Have a look at the link below,

Of late, I have noticed a more and more pictures edited to this style, it looks interesting and reminds me of how the "tilt shift" effect was used.

Any idea what this style / look is called?

Sorry, I'm not sure what it's called and I'm not sure I've seen it before either. Personally it doesn't do anything for me but I can see how some might like it.

I'm certainly not against a liberal hand in Photoshop either.

It would take a little masking work, the motion blur filter and eraser.

I think he perhaps calls it "Photo Impressionism":

Says in his introductory words that most of his images are digitally manipulated.

I think he is using selective blur effects and recolorisation, combined with compositing. I am not aware of any real particular name for this style as such - other than under the general "fine art composite" or "photomontage" type namings.
There is a certain tilt-shift characteristic to the image you have linked, but that is just the style he has created with (I deduce) the selective foreground digital blurring and background digital blurring whilst leaving the (probably composited) subject sharp. That creates the appareance of very narrow depth-of-field which is the signature optical characteristic of a tilt-shift lens.

Just anodd experiment

What  I don't understand is why would you use motion blur on the ground?

I've seen it used beautifully on both water and sky, but the ground???

AZBlue...

That's what I wanted to say, but I'm not a vet here like yourself. You can get away with saying it. Whereas, if I said it, I'd either be censored or have another member tear me a new one.

But really, 'crap' it is.

Smiles!
