Reflections-Orton Effect on Landscape:

Friends, this image was taken in the Boundary Waters in Northern Minnesota.  This area is famous for canoe trips thru wilderness lakes. The fall foliage and massive granite rocks make a good contrast and i loved the reflections. Now to experiment, the Orton Effect on the omage below, what do you think the original or the ortonized image? Or the third option which is a mix of the two sharp and soft images, What do you think?  i entered this in a reflections challenge, it can be  found at til Tomorrow MJ

  1. Hi MJ, I just put up another photo challenge and would love you to join in! Pass it on, everyone’s welcome. xxx Ailsa

  2. Excellent shots! Love the pastels!

  3. great pictures of a great place to camp, canoe and fish

  4. Absolutely stunning!!

  5. Beautiful photographs, magic place. I am greeting

  6. these are beautiful…the colours and the reflections really blend together to make them art

  7. Personally, I love the original MJ! No real need to mess with perfection, but always fun to play around I suppose. Margie

  8. Lovely, MJ, the colours are wonderful. I usually veer towards minimal processing, but the bottom image is quite eye-catching with the softened reflections. To make it easier for others to find your entry, could you post a link to the challenge page in your post – that way I can generate a pingback in the comments stream for people skimming through the comments.Thanks for joining in the alternate challenge. xx

  9. My preference is for the upper one, but it might be interesting to use the effect on just the water and maintain the crispness of the original in the upper section (foliage and rock). The final blend is definitely nicer than the middle image, as a whole, though I just feel pulled back to the original.

    It’s all a matter of taste, really. I’m sure others will have differing opinions!
