I took an ordinary shot from Sunday and applied the Orton Effect. What do you think?

I like the shot and the way the train moves into the view. The angle is different with the train moving into the shot but away from view. I'm not sure about the effect though.

Please explain what the Orton effect is. If it is an artistic post-processing technique, is is not permitted in this forum.

OK! This one is acceptable. Elegible or not, I don't really like the first one. My eyes are getting bad enough without having to try to focus on that.

I have mixed emotions about the "Orton Effect". While it is certainly a tool that we may want to keep in our kit I would tend to catalog it among the post processing tools.

It would seem difficult to to me visualize the scene above within the Orton effect as one was snapping away.

Aloha and thanks for sharing.

I agree with you Selvin. The Orton Effect is for certain types of pics. If you have any slightly overexposed vegetation pics they seem to work best. It creates a dreamy Peter Pan effect. So you can recycle some pic that may be considered a throwaway.
