My Attempts At Tilt-Shift Photography

Thanks to the phone app “Snapseed”, I was able to take scenes I took from the airplane and apply the “Tilt-Shift” option. What is tilt-shift photography? Well, according to Wikipedia:

Tilt-shift photography is the use of camera movements on small-and medium-format cameras, and sometimes specifically refers to the use of tilt for selective focus, often for simulating a miniature scene. Sometimes the term is used when the large depth of field is simulated with digital post-processing; the name may derive from the tilt-shift lens normally required when the effect is produced optically.

Or you can use a handy app for it as well, the only challenge is to take decent photos from the plane or overhead. My trip was from Kansas City to Ithaca, New York, with stop-overs in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania so those are where these photos come from (either descending to or ascending from airports).
