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 http://wheresmybackpack.wordpress.com/2012/05/12/reflections/ til Tomorrow MJ

Personally, I love the original MJ! No real need to mess with perfection, but always fun to play around I suppose. Margie
i guess the challenge of photography at my age, is to constantly learn new techniques, do i miss my old job in retirement? the learning part maybe, MJ
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
did i do it right ? MJ
Yes, you did, MJ, it’s showing up in the comments stream now so everyone can find it. Such lovely colours! 🙂
thank you for the great challenge theme, MJ
You’re welcome, I had such a lot of fun seeing everyone’s wonderful photos. xxx
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!
it is a rather intimate landscape, thanks for your input vickyth i really appreciate your comments, MJ
