Old Town Brasov (in miniature), Brasov - Romania

I have a new toy; the Nikon D5100. Apart from learning the ways of a DSLR camera, I am also having fun playing around with the effects feature. One of the inbuilt settings in this camera is the miniature effect (also known as tilt-shift photography). This style of photography has become popular of late, and I am wondering if it is just a passing fad. Either way, here is my contribution to the world of toy town photography.

Brasov sits next to a big hill which overlooks the city. Having a high vantage point so close to the city makes for ideal miniature photography. The church and square of the old town being the focal point, while the rest of the town is miniaturized.
