I discovered this many years ago along with this guide: http://pcin.net/update/2006/11/01/the-orton-effect-digital-photography-tip-of-the-week/. It's not bad, as long as it's not over-done.
You piqued my interest in this processing. I think it can be a technique for some specific graphical purposes. I will have to keep it in the back of my mind if the need arises.
Here is an attempt. I just randomly picked an image to see what I could do with it. Also, I added a second blur layer to the sky to fade it out even more.
I like your image. It almost gives the feeling of an encaustic painting. I think yours would make a nice print.
Interesting technique. Specific uses, but could get a great result if not overdone (as already pointed out). Thanks for the info.
Thanks for posting this. I love your image of the tree and its reflection. I must give it a try.
Nice photo. Here is one with a bit more subtle application of the Orton effect.
Hmmmmm... I want to try it, but I don't have PS. I wonder if Photomatix Pro will do it?
I didn't realise this had a name. I played around with this effect in high school when I first started messing around in Photoshop 10 years ago.
1) Clone original layer -> Gaussian blur -> Screen blend
2) Clone original layer -> Multiply blend
Then change the opacity of layers 1 and 2 (favouring 1) on top of the original to get the desired look.
I had a go - here's my first attempt:

Thank you. I also used the E-M1's Live Comp mode. That's a great tool for manipulating lighting on still life shots.
