Pond reflection thumbnail
Pond at the Japanese Garden, Seattle, WA. The image was digitally manipulated to simulate an Orton slide sandwich. Basically you overexpose two copies of the same image, blur one of the copies, and then stack them together to create this effect. This was my first attempt.

The Orton technique is explained in this Nature Photographers article by Darwin Wiggett.
