Since I started playing with the Orton effect around Christmas time I’ve been going back through some of my older shots looking for images that would go well with the effect. Of all the images I played with, this one is my favourite. For some reason the dream-like quality of the Orton Effect compliments the autumnal tones very well. If you’re interested in experimenting with the Orton Effect I posted a tutorial with screen cast a few weeks ago.
