I played with a tilt shift lens a little on my last trip, the problem I found was that on the trail there wasn't a lot of scale reference as you would find in the city or even some place with buildings. The other problem I found was that the Canon TS lens only shifts on one axis, so I couldn't shoot horizontals with the foreground and background blown out... I did just pick up a lens baby which is an inexpensive version of the Canon TS lens with more versatility and want to give it another shot.

Here is a really good example of a stop motion film someone did with the technique. Music sucks and it is a monster truck rally, but it's pretty entertaining none-the-less.
