Yes. Definitely worth it. Worth it to you, is up to you.

With the context of the OP only expressing interest in fake model / miniature use, unless he wanted to specialize in that, clearly not worth it.

Ah, right, I checked the links in the OP - see what you mean - overlooked them thinking it was a signature not part of the post.

None of those images grabbed me except this one:

Yeah, one example was from point and shoot, blur by processing.

That surprised me too (example you posted)
Unusual for a low shooting angle to work for miniature effect.

You can't move the focal plane in photoshop, you can just blur what you already have. It's definitely not the same thing. I don't find the argument any different to suggesting you don't need a f/1.2 lens for portraiture because you can just do it in photoshop.

^This! Just be aware that to get the best of a tilt-shift lens, you need a tripod.

Because it is made in Photoshop. Look at some edges on the left cliff it clearly shows that the blur is made artificially...

Still, the "Perspective Crop Tool" (Photoshop CS6) is a pretty powerful tool at straightening buildings without adding blur (unless already there). You can also take a "straight" object and introduce some perspective distortion is that is the desire. The tool, new to CS6, is described at http://www.photoshopes​sentials.com …erspective-crop-tool-cs6/ (external link).
