I am sure many of you are familiar with the "Orton effect." These are the type of images Freeman Patterson refers to as "impressionistic."
They used to be very popular during the film era by fine art photographers although to make them required lots of time in the darkroom. They are easily produced today with the computer and many times the results could be very striking. They are "different" images after all.
This is from my trip to Grand Tetons National Park two years ago.
I used a D100 with 28-105 AF lens, Gitzo tripod and Linhof ballhead.
The rest is Photoshop.

The Orton effect

Thank you Angela and gentlemen for your comments. Yes, the Orton effect works very nicely on some images.
This other one is a courtesy of my wife's garden. The colors were muted due to the flat light and I lifted them with curves in Photoshop.
This is my D2H set to ISO 400. The lens is the 50mm f1.8 wide open focused in the frontmost petals to blur the rest.
If posting another example of the Orton effect is against the rules, Moderator please feel free to discard this picture.
