Very effective. Looks like tilt/shift lens is being applied in the swing plane....

A little trick I learned: Take any photo (a city works really well.) Work it in Photoshop so it is in focus toward the center and gradually more blurry as you move toward the edges. Looks like a model.

I agree with the comments on it looking fake,, and it makes me want to craft a model Hawaii. Then I could mind surf it all day ......

The "toy" effect only comes in when you check out the line-up, after that you can't help but see it all that way. So cool.
