tilt shift

i've had a few opportunities over the last week to have a play with a tilt shift lens and it's been rough to say the least! it's so tricky to use properly but its easy to see how amazing a lens like this could be if you used it at the right time.. the hardest bit is that i guess my head is geared around having a depth of field relative to where i land my focus and not to a directional pane of my choosing, which is a marvelously free notion but i need much more skill to be able to pull it off well.

i guess the difficulty gives reason for people photoshopping their images to copy a tilt shift but the real use of a tilt shift is not for value of shockingly different pictures, it's meant to not be seen , which is even harder than the previous option.
