I like it. Dreamy, wonderful color, almost like an impressionist painting. The Orton effect makes the picture glow. I'd hang it on my wall.

netuser, here's a definition of the Orton Effect, if this is what Rense did, that is.

Lovely effect on a beautiful shot Rense.

Dave - what you are seeing is slightly different, you are experiencing the 'alcoholised effect' - in common use but unfortunately the treatment needs to be intermittently repeated to retain the ethereal feel to your environment.
