Bathtub II

This is really neat. This guys films scenes of Sydney Harbor, and then blurs out the foreground and background. The effect is that you feel as if you're watching a scene of miniature models, a lot like the I Spy books we read when we were little.

Indeed this is an effective and cool idea. The distance of the shot combined with the gradient of soft focus/depth of field does really make it feel like it is a small scale model being filmed, instead of the real thing. And the speed increase also helps it feel like an emulation. This is actually a fairly simply effect to create in aftereffects for anyone who wants to do something like this.
