Silver Efex Pro

  1. Really enjoying the latest release from Nik, Silver Efex Pro. Here's a shot I processed in LR2 with a "lucis art" type contrast. I then used Silver Efex in photoshop to conver to B&W. Siver Efex settings were orange filter, coffee tone (7) and grain per pixel of about 350.

    I'm most impressed by the grain structure - looks very natural to me.

  2. Joe, your results are excellent.
    The grain looks great.

    I played around with the trial version and posted some stuff here, but your subject here is much more interesting.

    Have you tried the "structure" function?
    What film type did you use?

  3. Thanks Virginia. I have used the structure function and I think it terrific. I didn't use a film pre-set for this one, I created my own using only a grain setting.

  4. Joe,

    This looks great ........ I have only heard good things about this filter. Now .... if they would just lower the price.......:Angry:

    Best,
     
  5. If you're a NAPP member it's $50 off. Nik is always a bit pricey but it also doesn't fail to deliver results so I find it a fair value.
