Another "Orton Effect" picture, I find this works well with winter subjects and the intensity of the effect can be varied from subtle to obvious. This is very obvious.

I like this shot immensely even if though I'm not a fan of manipulated photography Mike. I suppose a great composition is a great composition however you achieve it. Great work!

Thank you so much Cleveland.
In my life I have done drawing, painting and photography and sometimes the distinctions become blurred. I tend to think of the image rather than the method!
