Pretty cool. What did you use to get that effect?

Looks like a commercial for a Bambi flick, and I mean this in a positive way!

Nice dreamy soft focus effect you have there. Keeping the deer in sharper focus is a good idea. Or was that by design?

Thank you very much for the comments everyone, I appreciate it !
I use Orton-effect in my work. I also added a little selective USM
(sharpening) to the deer.

Take care,

Dwayne Oakes

Love this photo! What does "Orton effect" mean?

Hi Linda - have a look here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BLQfva4kWbY

Quite complicated, if you ask me.... I could not follow / understand the whole process.

Easier her? http://www.naturephotographers.net/a.../dw0106-1.html

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!
