Great big gods, teeny tiny temples!

Why did all the supposed-to-be-massive sets in Immortals 3D look tiny? Did it have something to do with the fact that it's a 3D conversion? It was like the whole thing was shot in tilt-shift.

I saw Immortals 3D with the husband last night -- terrible movie by the way, but pretty -- and one thing that struck me was that all the enormous buildings just somehow looked minuscule. Like the Sybelline temple somehow appeared to be about the size of a Rubik's cube, with teeny tiny little Greeks walking around it. It was very much like the effect given by tilt-shift photography.
I know this was a 3D conversion, but I've never actually seen a movie in 3D before so I have nothing to compare it to. I also have exceptionally good vision (20/15); would that have anything to do with it? Or was it just done really badly?
