Default Took a stab at the orton effect.

I snapped this shot earlier this summer while hiking. I was just browsing around and found a few shots that had the effect and thought it looked kind of cool, so I decided to give it a try.

While I dont like the Orton effect, there is a place for it. And this is it. Nice job here.

How did you process the photo into the Orton effect?

Hi Hoff,
I love it.
The pathway meandering through the trees, the softness, Orton and the sun. Get a great feel from it.

A bit too much foreground i think, but it's still very nice!
