Sunset Caught
Posted By: Rense, 04-30-2010, 12:44 PM

Driving home from a family visit on one of our national holidays today, I noticed the sun caught in the seed-balls of the Dandelions in the verges. So I stopped the car and shot some photos. This is one of the exposures. Just slightly cropped and treated with the Orton Effect.

Now this is a masterpiece, my friend - frame it and put it on the wall.

Jer, this is the first time I'm considering framing and hanging a self-made picture...

Wow Rense, you used the Orton effect effectively. Absolutely beautiful.
Thank you Suzan. Just trying to understand when it works, and when it doesn't....

Fantastic image!

I think I like the one with the orton effect better but its hard to decide. Part of me likes the sharpness in the original but I keep settling on the softness of the edges.

Thats one of the many effects I have never tried and I keep telling myself I have got to learn my software better.

Thanks for posting
