The Orton Technique

Another interesting photo technique (named after Michael Orton). To be perfectly honest, I’m not that big fan, it makes images a little bit ‘cheesy’. However, it should be interesting for every graphics programmer, as the idea behind it is almost exactly the same as behind fullscreen glow/bloom effect. Basically, it’s a blend of two images, the original one & overexposed/blurred layer. Sample result:
