Glamaig and the Icy Sligachan Burn, Isle of Skye, Scotland. by 


From Sligachan, when the burn ( river ) was on the point of freezing, and the colour of steel.
There were some lovely glints of reflected light on the water, where I was standing in deep shadow, so I shot for HDR, knowing that would bring out the best detail in the water, and the colours.

Canon EOS50D, tripod, Canon 17-85 IS lens at 17mm, iso 100, cloudy wb, f23, 1/4 sec, …..
A three shot HDR, RAW files processed in Photomatix, then polished up in PS CS3, selective colour, a bit of “multiply” in a duplicate layer.. and I reduced the opacity, then a touch of Orton…. by duplicating my image, applying Orton, then layering on top of the original , reducing opacity, until the desired effect was achieved, then flattened. This makes the colours POP !

    Cracking image Barbara with great composition and processing. Could you perhaps explain the Orton technique you’re using in a little more detail?
