    I think there is a little easier way to do the effect than the link shows. See if you don't think this result is a little easier.

    Always work on a duplicate image and not the original. Duplicate background layer (ctl+j), then Image/Apply image and change blending to screen. Duplicate the new layer (ctl+j), apply the gaussian blur and change the blending mode to multiply. You can also change the opacity of each layer to fine tune the effect even more. Then (ctl+e) to merge those two layers if you wish. This way you don't have to worry about moving the blurred image into the other image.

    Once again, thanks for the link.
    I'll give that a try. Moving the blurred image onto the other one is not really an issue though. Holding the shift key as you move it snaps it perfectly in place. Either way it's still far easier than shooting two images on slide film and putting them together.

    Tori - you're welcome, although the credit should go to hokeyguy. I just made it a little easier to accomplish IMO. Very nice shot of the trees with/without the Orton effect.

    Yes, you can hold the shift key as you move it to snap in place. It just seemed like a couple of needless steps IMO. Always looking for a way to reduce workflow . I totally agree that either is far easier than sandwiching slides . What a pain! You gotta love digital!

    Thanks for the link, Hokey. I've been playing with Orton for several hours now, thanks to you I found that I could usually find good results with Multiply if I added more Screen layers or put in a pure white layer.

    Dennis, I love that shot. One of my favorites of yours.

    This thread is great!

    Here's my humble contribution:



    And with toriaj's great suggestion I tried the orton effect. I think the effect is awesome! It could maybe use a little work with curves/levels, but I'm definitely going to be using this again.

    Wow, I think your first shot has a lot of potential. Maybe you could go at it with some of the great PP techniques we've seen lately
    Beautiful as-is, though. I love the "star" effect on the bench. And the swan is the frosting on the cake!

    Here is a panorama that I took at the beach

    Its actually cropped, I found it to be a lot better when he's at the end
    no editing, just shadows brightened a bit..

    this is the kind of photo that I should of shot in RAW format..

    if you look into the horizon you can tell it was badly stitched together, I don't have a tripod so I do all my panorama's by handheld

    fun..not

    lol, now . Tori had posted that after my post on the Orton effect and I'm sitting here thinking - shot, what shot? I knew I was getting old and senile but...........now I can relax, lol.

    and also to the other Dennis - nice shots!
