Tilt shift, to the uninitiated, is a photo technique originally only implemented through special expensive lenses, but the tilt shift effect can be reproduced to an extent via software these days.

Without getting too technical about it, a tilt-shift lens allows you to do lots of clever things with the focus plane of the lens. What does that mean? Well one of the fun things you can do is to make a real world scene look like a miniature toy world.

If you want to try and apply the effect with Photoshop to digital photos you've taken just google Fake Tilt Shift to turn up tutorial videos on the subject.

You also see it on TV sometimes; the technique was used in the intro to the recent BBC TV series of Sherlock Holmes; it made Piccadilly Circus look like a model. That was video of course and really when you have movement the effect is better still.

A brilliant example, with links to others, of what I'm on about can be viewed off the link below and don't forget this is real world video material slightly speeded up via time lapse and not a model thing:

Remember to maximize the player to full screen for best effect

Nice video Jim! I found this recently which allows a fake tilt shift effect on any photo you have.

It's not as good as the real thing but it can create some nice effects if you use the right source photo.
