Yesterday I upgraded my NIK Silver Efex to the latest version. Of course I needed a test right away. Why not pick something hard…so a foggy morning landscape fit the bill.
Nothing dramatic, no film noir’s, or blown out high keys. All of which I’m a big fan. Something with details and different shading for the first test. I like it 🙂.
In case you don’t do many monochrome or B&W photographs NIK Silver Efex is the standard third party conversion software. It’s much more than conversion though. All aspects of shading, structure, and light/dark management are available. The color filters are very good.
NIK is a collection of programs primarily used as add ons to photo editing systems. The parent company DxO is well known for providing both consumer and camera manufacturers technical software.
