Redditors TheScienceLlama and Wattsit have utilized the power of Photoshop to miniaturize the vastness and expanse of outer space. Using the Tilt-Shift filter in Photoshop and employing a technique called Miniature Faking, they’ve taken already breath-taking images of space, and made it even more breath-taking. That’s a breath-taking-ception right there, you guys! Guys?

Miniature Faking, or the Diorama effect, is a process in which a photo’s parts are blurred to simulate shallow depth of field, making the location or object look smaller than it actually is. With this effect, images look like scale models instead of their regular size, ergo, miniaturizing.
