I just signed up for BetterPhoto.com....Who knows if I will participate in the contests but I will try to :) I am not the greatest at photography :)

Thanks, Bearuh! I sandwiched an ortonized photo of the kids on the dune with a crystal from the museum. Send me your better photo gallery link when you get started.

Wonderful photo! I'd love to know what "ortonize" means ;-))

Happy New Year, Mary!

It's been a while since I've visited your blog, and I'm really inspired by this image. It's got me thinking about photos I might want to consider blending.

Thank you Marie and Kackie for your kind comments!!!!

The Orton effect is when yoiu sandwhich an out of focus photo with an infocus one--it creates a halo effect.

here is a link to a tutorial explaining how to do it.
