I quite like it, but there's something about it which doesn't quite fit and I can't put my finger on it. I think it might be the plane of focus you've chosen, but hey, I still like it.

Looks like a model/miniature train.

@BigCol - I will admit to it not being as convincing as some of my others. I think the presence of the people detracts from the intended effect, and perhaps I needed to be a bit higher up when taking the original shot...

Thanks for your comments.

I like it too, think you are right about the people. It's strange seeing Betws like that Smile

I do like the tilt-shift look, it adds a fun element to shots. I agree that the people look slightly odd for a TS. Often the people in these shots are so much smaller, but these have detail and there pose is very human which halts the effect of a model village. But I guess you couldn't shout across and ask them to stand model like Wink The rest of the shot is true 00 gauge.

Wow, great work, had to look twice, to see that wasn't a model

This really works well, the composition really does look like a miniature scene
