Default How the heck did I do this?

Hi

So I was looking through a few pictures I was editing awhile back and man I wish I could duplicate this:

Original
BenChristine_406.jpg
Edited
Edited-115.jpg

Can someone help me figure it out? I just can't duplicate this. I like it looking all dreamy.

Not to sound harsh, but why would you want to replicate that?

Ok I can't say I like the processing but when I copy the orginal layer run a gaussian blur filter with 5 over it, change the mode to Screen add a saturation filter with +25 (for saturation value) I come pretty close.

I'd say it was some type of Orton effect; although I must admit, I'm not too fond of the photo.

I think I am a bit bias against it. A friend and fellow photographer uses the same effects and a black vignette around all his pics to compensate for a bad exposure or composition or photo in general. He thinks he can wow them with special effects, instead of taking the picture right the first time.

Since spring is upon us, I've been taking photos of flowers, so I meant to give them a glow. I thought maybe this effect would enhance it, but we'll see.
