planet5D LightZone Overview- Gausian Blur Technique

I was looking at old LZ videos and found the one below.  In particular I found the technique that uses Gaussian blur to be very interesting, found about halfway through the video.  Depending on the image you are working on, the effective results can be dreamy looking.  I added a similar style to my list of styles.  I didn't use the "screen" blending mode  on the second Gaussian blur that the video called for however.

Thanks a lot. Following the hints in that video the orton effect is very easy to get in LZ and I saved it as a style as well.

Btw, I knew the effect as its use is widespread , but didn't know its name: Orton
