Tilt-shift Van Gogh

Imagine if there was a way to take the vivid imagery of Vincent Van Gogh and give it even more depth.  Before now I would think this feat could only really be done in my head.  That was before I was introduced to Tilt-shift photography.

Tilt-shift photography is a process in which depth of field and lens angle are manipulated to make a real scene look like a miniature.

The effect can be simulated in Photoshop with judicious selections and applications of blur filters.
