Default October in yellow - orange and a little green

Just wondered if I can 'get away' with this treatment for a typical October-picture and to catch the right Autumm-feel?



"October"


The original shot with no PP whatsoever looks like this:

Curious about my photography?
You may look up my small portfolio on the Norwegian photo-forum: http://walter_s.foto.no/ - click - "LATEST" on left bottom of page.
You may then click any thumbnail to view the picture and click again on the displayed picture for an unobstructed full screen view. Enjoy!

Simon must be a daddy by now. More important things to look after.
Nice look Walter. Nice dreamy colorful fall day.

Walter-

I love your photos, but in this case, to my eye, the original looks better.

Default I appreciate your comments!

Thank you - all of you!

For your very kind words. Yes, I have threatet this with the Orton Effect to get that mellow, soft and dreamy look I was after.

Quiet a bit of bluring on the second layer (64pixels) and then multiply, some 75%


I quite like this effect, but it's only good for certain pictures, special where there is a lot of foliage and preferably soft light to start with...?

...I like the modified version quite a lot, however, I would rotate the file clockwise to when the larger tree (photo left) is closer to vertical.
