I'm not fond of a lot of the instagram photo's I've seen either, but, like car mods, to each their own. Everyone has their own taste in how their pix look and some like being able to tweak what they did on they fly w/o any real post-processing know how or SW, maybe because its new to them. As with photographers and post-processing, effects done wrong can look like crap, too. I'm no expert photographer myself, just an amateur hobbyist.
Always been a fan of the tilt-shift effect (when done right). Thanks for posting that, Stopper.
