The Orton Effect

This image is an example of the Orton effect. To make this style of image one can either shoot two frames of the same subject using a tripod, one in focus and one out of focus, and then sandwich them together OR using image editing software you can create this effect by creating two layers the image and applying a Gaussian Blur effect on one of the layers.
Orton effect images have a romantic glow, as though shot through cheese cloth.
