thanks Walter, it does have an Irish feel doesn't it?

Pboerger - thank you, and yes it is an Orton treatment.

Hards80,
How green was my screen? Really green. That's a supersaturated view of a very well composed trail.
Aloha

Please explain for those of who don't know what Orton is.

If my mother could see this, she would call it the Garden of Eden.

Cal and Selvin, thank you for the kind words appreciated.

Cal - for those that don't know. the Orton effect is a post-processing technique in which you duplicate your background image and make a sharp layer and an out-of-focus layer using gausian blur. you then combine them using screen and multiply blend modes. this gives you a "glow" from the out of focus layer, yet because of the sharp layer, details are still visible. the blending mode enhances saturation.

Wow, really like that shot. Being half Irish, I tend to like green colors.

thanks calicajun,

it definitely would have been appropriate on St. Patty's day eh? when i was reviewing my photos the lush green made me immediately think of our weekly challenge, and the orton processing just brought them out even further.
