i was bored this evening, and had just read a tutorial on how to simulate the "Orton effect" in Photoshop, so i thought i'd give it a shot... took a pic i shot with my FZ20 last spring that looked like a good candidate, and tried it out. here's the original...



and here's the "Orton" version...

heya, Will! good to see you back! yep, a lot of new faces, and a lot of new "old timers" as well...

i know what you mean about lurking around. i got a Canon 30D about a year ago, but i still pop in here from time to time to see how everyone's doing, and to share whatever i've managed to capture that's worth a damn. i still have my FZ20, and have no intention of getting rid of it any time soon... :G

Nice picture. I actually prefer the first one as the clarity reveals so much more. Of course no.2 has more athmosphere etc but I still prefer No.1...
It is hard to stop playing with photoshop. I a constantly doing too much on my pics. (Not that you have done so!).

agreed. i like the clarity of the first one a lot better too, but the soft, moody feel of the Orton effect grows on you after a while. it's certainly not for every shot, or everyone, but for some pics, it really does work magic. not that this is one of them, this is just one i picked to experiment with..

Hi Squirl, I love the "Orton" version. It makes the picture "stand out" more. Do you mind sharing theprocess? Thanks.

Love the first shot Rocky but so far I am not a fan of the "Orton effect". But like anything maybe it will grow on me.

That is a neat effect but I also like the first one better as well. I could see this effect used on a greeting card or something like that. What is this "Orton" effect?
