so this is my first time.
PS: picture taken using quite a old digi cam, so not very good quality.

Mmm, effect is done pretty well, at least to me.
Framing can be slightly improved though - exclude the minor distraction at the top and perhaps clone away the dot on the top right in the sea, and this makes a pretty good picture with the TTE (toy train effect). ;)

Looks fun to me, and very well done. Two things affect me when it comes to it trying to look like a toy, firstly is the Singapore flag, its too fluid to look like a small toy, secondly are the foreground vegetations, looks too real to be a toy. Other then that, I enjoyed your creation very much!! ;)

to make the tilt shift effect you need to frame the blur parts and the clear parts strategically. You should shift the focus slightly towards the center. right now it's too low so the effect isn't as obvious.

also try to up the contrast when doing tilt shift.

I don't think so, bcuz in the 1st pic, from the traffic espicially from the bus i can feel the toy feeling, now you blur those toy feeling subjects:bheart:

try instead of pulling the gradient vertically... try pulling it diagonally... so the cars can be focused :)
