    I guess another "technique" of sorts, would be photo-shopping screenshots.
    Speaking of which, for those with photoshop, this would be a wicked cool thing to see done. Render's can yield similar effects i know, but ofc only Q can do those.

    I might try this if i get a chance, and an appropriate shot to do it with.

    On newer versions of Photoshop than that one used in the tutorial, they actually come with a tilt-shift filter option under the Filter drop-down menu.

    Is there anything other than blurring the top and blurring the bottom of the image?

    sharpening and making brighter posts of the image you want to stand out. Stitching together multiple images so it looks like you have a shitton rendered.Adding hues to add atmosphere to sunrise/set or making certain parts darker. You can also add rain and lightning. I'll link two pictures when I'm on my PC.

    It's the difference between this:

    And this:

    This was done only hours after I've first used photoshop, it's all very easy.(though I want to go back and change the lightning later)
