Orton effect intrigues me, so here is one I tried.

Those are good! Can you remember the settings and steps you used?

I guess I'm more of a realist when it comes to pp, but this effect I like. I know it'w more than a few mouse clicks, which will prevent many from trying it, including me..

Thanks Ordo and Hawg. Ordo,I use NX2, if you do let me know and I will be more specific but basically I lighten midtones with levels and curves, them multiply in GB, then multiply midtones again in LC, then fiddle with saturation a bit, and some more HP....that is the basics I use. Ordo I know you like the Orton effect also, I got Michael Orton's book the other day, kinda outdated, not alot on the Orton effect but good reading for creative ideas of getting the creative thought process flowing.
