Fake Miniatures

While following Gregor Rohring's very interesting blog, I've noticed that he made some very cool fake miniature pictures. I was intrigued. So I scoured the net for instructions on how to make these. These type of pictures are fairly easy to make in Adobe Photoshop. I will not go into details here on how to make them, as they are perfectly outlined on Digital ImageMaker.I went through my Adobe Lightroom catalog, looking for appropriate shots. I found two, from our trip to Las Vegas earlier this year. Not the best shots, but could use them for this fake miniature project. After fighting with the gradient tool in Photoshop for a good hour, I think managed to pull this miniature off. Yes, I know, they are not as nice as Gregor's, but hey for a first time they are not too bad.
