Default i walked in a dream down a road through a wood...

this is a shot i took a bit over a year ago, but it lends itself well to "fiddling with", which is exactly what i was doing this evening... a touch of Orton, some lighting effects to make the road itself appear brighter than the trees on either side, and voila!

Agree with previous posters. I love the Orton effect, I must read up on it, as Dwayne Oakes uses it I think, and his pictures are great, as is this one.

this was taken on a gravel road just off highway 20 in eastern Washington State, near the town of Twisp.

I look at the picture and my first thought is: "Did I forget to put on my lenses today?"

Then after looking at for a little I start to really like the colour composition. Autumn is a special time where there are a wide variety of colours, capturing them in an interesting fashion can be difficult, but the orton-effect seemed to help make it interesting.

...after I realised that I had put on my lenses.
