Greatly appreciated, Dossy, Samuel, Steve, Pete, Glenn, Rob, Rob and Ky!
Thank you all!

On the processing, I convert the raw files to jpg and dng with DxO. A converter I've been using since my first steps in digital photography.
I use the dng files to convert to b&w, usually with SEP2.
Although I occasionally use the 'Filmpack' that is incorporated in DxO as well.

Excellent work!

The shots are well exposed, great detail and nicely processed. And the compositions are very nice.

You mentioned DxO software....I'm not really familiar with their products. Do you use DxO Optics Pro as your main processing s/w? Is DxO View Point needed if you own Optics Pro?

Any chance you have used Nik Color Efex Pro and Viveza and can offer any comparisons?

Thanks - and again, nice work!

Thank you!

I do use DxO as my Raw converter. I have always preferred the colours I get from it compared to those from LR. (strange thing to say in the b&w forum :smile:)
There is also the fact that the images are automatically geometrically corrected for the camera-lens combinations that are supported. Can be a 'dramatic' result. Even if the camera is supported but the camera-lens combination isn't, I still prefer DxO.
I also have a camera that has only been recently supported by DxO. Before that I used LR to convert those files. So, I have had a reasonably extended comparison between the two.

Anything you can do in DxO View Point, you can also do in Optics Pro but perhaps just a bit less user friendly. On the other hand, it's all in the same processing flow and that is big plus.

I have used Color Efex Pro a bit. I don't really see a comparison there.
I have yet to discover Viveza (since the free gift from Google/Nik) so I can't give you any insight there.

Bart,

Thanks so much for the follow up. It was unclear whether or not both View Point and Optics Pro were recommended. Guess you use both!

So far, I've had very good success with the Adaptive Wide Angle filter in CS6. In fact today, I had to use it a lot to "fix" a photo I took in my small office of a large bookcase my hubby just finished building for me. But I'm always open to learning new tools!
