A Slate slideshow about the notion of photographic plagiarism mentions the apparently faddish technique of tilt/ shift photography, which among other effects can make scenes look like photos of miniature models. Highly neat, often gimmicky, oddly touching in a detached sort of way when done well. There are lots of examples in Flickr's Tilt Shift pool. Highly recommended for anyone who likes staring out of airplane windows, or perhaps fans of Harry Lime's comment about dots in the Riesenrad scene in The Third Man.
