Lovely... nice feel and composition to this image. #3805963

Thanks Chris. I found the 'Orton technique' just added a little to it and made it brighter.

Beautiful capture and wonderful use of the Orton technique Roger!!!! #3935208

Roger Fry February 20, 2007

Thanks Renee I'm glad you like it. The Orton is certainly useful at 'brightening up' our sometimes dark and dull scenes. Its not fair that Australia is so bright !
