Been messing about with this technique over the weekend. Quite pleased with the results, although these 3 shots were the only ones I could find that suited the effect.I`d be interested to hear what others think....

Hmm. After reading the page, I will have to go into the recyle bin and pull out some of those slow shutter speed shots and say they had the Orton Effect applied. Not blurry at all it is art. Seriously though, these do look nice.

Very nice shots Mark. Pictures with the "Orton Effect" I've seen up till now were of single flowers or,of a portrait. I have never seen the Orton effect applied to a landscapeor on toa large area. Needles to say I'm not an expert on the subject.

Hi Mark,

#1 works really well, I think it suits the subject. #2 works as well. Not sure it works on #3, though the subject is OK it looks like there are some strange effects around the tree.

Here is an urban version

Thanks for the comments.
Steve, the effect is quite strange as despite the painterly watercolour effect the details remain quite sharp so it may not prove a saviour for those out of focus binned shots (I wish it would too) :-)
Emmanuel,it was Raf`s shot in his reply which he posted on here ages ago that prompted me to see which shots would be worth trying the effect on.
Raf,I wasnt too sure about number 3 either but included it anyway to see what others thought.You confirmed my own thoughts regarding the tree branches.Nice to see you back on here too

That does give a strange effect. I'm not yet sure if I like it though. I have always fought so hard to get everything focused perfectly that it leaves me wondering. It does seem to give a kind of 3-D effect (on my monitor) to the photos though.

Thanks Don.Yes it does give images a strange look.I printed out the first and second shots at A4 size and the details are still very sharp despite the effect.Agree it does give a sort of 3d feel to the images.
