Tulips from my front garden in the spring. A few minor adjustments plus the orton effect worked quite nicely on this image. I am pleased with the results.

    I’m not real sure what the “orton” effect is….but it is very effective!! These are beautiful tulips…absolutely LOVE the light pink outline along the top of the petals. Beautiful and instant Favorite, Robin!

  • Well Barb. I am not that practiced in the orton effect yet but I seem to be doing OK with it. I love the softness it adds to an image. It is a layering process that I do in photoshop. There is an orton group on here and I think they have a tutorial on it if you are so inclined to try it. I also messed with the clarity on this image to soften the edges. Thanks so much for your great comment Barb. I appreciate it!
