    "Discovery" captured so beautifully in vivid color! The subject matter would be knockout in b&w as well-- this is a real WINNER no matter how you present it! The diagonal split [water/dock] enhance the image appeal even further. The stick in his hand, the position he's in, the lilly pads and goldfish-- MARVELOUS!! KUDOS BIG TIME, Peggy!

    I love the colors and the soft glow of this photo! how did you do it?

  • peggy gardner

    peggy gardner said (12 Nov 2008):

    by using "the orton" technique named after it's inventor.
    the old school way to achieve this "dreamy" affect is to expose the image on paper in the darkroom in focus 1/2 the time, and then throw it out of focus the other half to render a both sharp and clear image. it is a printing technique.
    in microsoft office picture editor, I reduced middle tones a little to alleviate muddy tones associated with digital photography as a general rule.....
    to add to the color saturation and softness...when there's good light (strong but softened by clouds) you get less drama....
    um...did I answer your question?
