Here’s a nice write-up on two techniques to apply to your imagery back in the darkroom. The basic effect is called the Orton Effect (I call it the Dreamy effect and I’ve created a Lightroom Preset that effectively does this same technique–email me if you want it).
From the article here: Creative Nature Photography – Orton Imagery “The technique is now firmly entrenched in the arsenal of creative techniques that photographers use to create expressive imagery. Orton Imagery originally was a slide-film based technique but it can be easily replicated using digital images and photo software. For those not familiar with Orton Imagery here is a summary of the methods for both slide shooters and digital photographers.”
