Contest Rules

The Orton EffectWhat is it?

Essentially, the Orton Effect gently blurs your image to give a dream-like quality. It is commonly used among landscape photographers and was previously a fairly popular process in portrait photography. Perhaps easy to overuse? You may judge for yourself from the example here or do further research.




1. Three photographs per member.

2. Landscape image or portrait photo suggested but not a requirement.

3. Digital alternations encouraged!

The contest is just for fun. Learning a new technique is your prize.
