Cool Black & Images with Nik's Silver Efex Pro

I'm at the Nik Summit in San Deigo, CA. Got me thinking about Nik's Silver Efex Pro - a very, very cool method for creating dynamic black-and-white images. Check it out if you like black-and-white imaging.

When playing with Silver Efex Pro, be sure to apply different color filters to your image. Each one makes a big difference in the end-result.

This picture was not taken at the Summit. I took it in Cuba in 2001. :-)

Hi Rick.

Totally with you on Nik Silver Efex Pro; absolutely love it. So much so it's my only 'stop' for B&W conversions.

Great work with the blog which is firmly embedded in my Google Reader.

All the best to you,
