The Hall

This is another image created with Nik Silver Efex Pro 2. The ease with which great black and white images can be created with Silver Efex is pretty impressive…I probably spent less than 10 minutes creating this black and white conversion. I still haven’t tried it out on any portraits, so that will be my next experiment.

This is incredible. You’re making me consider looking at this. Well done!

SEP2 is definitely a “GO!” Used it on an image I will publish on my blog Monday.

This is stunning Heath! I have to try this Nik Silver Efex Pro 2 soon. Looks like it does a fabulous job!

Black and white is perfect for this image… I love the symbols on the wall/column and what a great vanishing point!

I like SEP too, but whenever I think it’ll work well I always decide on the colour image. However I do sometimes use it and drop the opacity, or change blending mode which can give a nice effect.
