Orton on the Atlantic Ocean



It has been a while since I've really played with some photos, and by far my mostest favoritest visual effect is my digital approximation of the Orton process.

I'd probably do it on almost all of my photos, but then everyone would get sick of it. But this effect is tailor made for photos with beautiful light in them.

These two photos were taken about 30 minutes apart from nearly the same location. Maybe 10 meters from one another.

Lovely Wife helps keep me humble, because whenever I do this to a photo, she asks, "why did you make it blurry?"

Sigh.

I guess I should be happy to suffer for my art, though. Instead, I just wonder why she doesn't "get it."

For better or worse I guess, and if that's as worse as it gets, then I'm doing alright.

Sounds like my marriage: he's the dreamer, I'm the realist...

However, I totally "get" what you're trying to convey ;-)
