Raining variations

Discussion in 'Retouching and Post Processing' started by obeaman, Jul 24, 2008.

  1. It has been raining so I have been experimenting. Both include conversion to BW with Nik Silver Efex. The second image has a mask to transition from Color at the top to BW at the bottom.All comments welcome - Brian
  2. i like these both
    they are quite interesting and different
    i think you did a great job

    thanks for sharing these with us
  3. Interesting Brian, but, from what little I've seen from this software, the same kinds of effects can easily be obtained with the standard, more complete editing packages.
  4. That first one would make a great ad for the gps.
  5. Both are very interesting ..... I like #2 a lot.

  6. Many thanks for the feedback guys, I appreciate your comments. Silver Efex is not for everyone (cost justification) and there are about a zillion ways to convert to B&W. Obviously, if converting a small number of images the cost is not justified, nontheless the software works well for me and I like the speed at which I can produce many variations of the conversion before deciding which works for the effect that I am trying to create. I am still learning the finer points of Silver Efex but so far think it will be added to my suite of tools.

    Yes and no. The ability to use Nik's U=Point control and brush technology makes it very much quicker and easier to do it with the plug-in.
