Okay, sorry for the delay, completely spaced it (did ya even notice?)
Here are the few pictures that I also played with trying to do the tilt-shift effect, but they just weren't quite right.
As it turns out the sky in pictures is a bit uncooperative; you can't really blur a sky. Also, it seems you really do need to have a downward angle in the picture. Also, I think these are proof that you need to play around with where you have the center of focus...
That is all.
