The Orton Method

The Orton Method was invented by Michael Orton using slide film but can be easily replicated in Gimp / Photoshop etc. One image is sharply focused and over exposed ~2 stops. The other is very out of focus and over exposed by ~1 stop. The result adds a really nice dreamlike painterly quality to a photograph.

To play visit this easy tutorial , or a slightly more complex tutorialthat lets you have greater control.
