Three Reds - Redux



I was recently reading an article in a photoghraphy magazine and the author referred to something called the "Orton Technique." The technique involves combining identical scenes, but one that is in focus and the other that is blurred and shot a couple of stops higher. Since I am using digital media, I decided to try and recreate the effect in photoshop. This is my first effort, and, I have to say I like it. Here is a link to the other photo, for comparison: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_C8-LspQXej0/RiHV23zSRuI/AAAAAAAAALc/J-Cg-no0p6w/s1600-h/Three+Reds3.jpg
