Model train effect

VA3_9403, originally uploaded by gugs.

An example shot using a tilt lens (here a Ukranian 80mm 2.8 Arsat lens - Nikon mount). By tilting the lens, you get a strange focus spread, showing things in different planes being in focus. This is called the Scheimpflug effect. This results in pictures looking like model train pictures. This one has been shot in Switzerland. More info on the lens on my wiki:
