Miniature Downtown -- Phoenix
The Nikon 1 J3 camera has a creative setting that is supposed to create an image that looks miniature. Here's downtown Phoenix, that's Chase Field with the roof rolled back on the lower right, taken from a Delta flight on Tuesday afternoon.
The miniature effect blurs the up front and way in the back parts of the image. What's in the center, in this case the tall buildings of a downtown, then look like they are a part of a diorama. Think model train setup and you will get the idea of the effect.
It does kind of look like you could pinch one of these buildings between your thumb and first finger and then move it to another spot on the checkerboard!
