Re: Daytona Beach Florida

I love the composition plus the UWA. B&W was a good choice too. The Silver sfex pro2 has really made these images stand out. Have you compared the pro2 to Topaz B&W effects? I wonder how they would compare.

Re: Daytona Beach Florida

Great shots Jim! I especially like the first one, the quiet surf works really well there.

Thank you Orv,, I also love the UWA lens' ,, gotta love filling the frame with as much as beauty possible I actually own both softwares, Topaz is a great software for the money, it really is,, but I tried the 30 day demo of the Nik Silver efex Pro 2.0 software and I tell ya, I REALLY dig that software,, you can dial in on specific areas in your images and really tweak that image,,, you CAN do that with the Topaz as well but for me I like the workflow and the end result better with the Nik Software,, of course you PAY more for Nik software then the Topaz,, for those who "lurk" and may be interested, BOTH softwares ARE available for a FREE 30 day trial with no obligation,, give it a go and see how it works for you

Re: Daytona Beach Florida

Liking that 1st shot here as well Jim!

Noticed the graduated darking from the center to the left, is that from the processing?

I too own both the Nik and Topaz versions. I like the interface to the control points much better in the Nik package. Just seems much more user friendly.

Re: Daytona Beach Florida

Love the water shot Jim. Even with the blown out spot on the cloud. Is that from the original exposure, or from processing?

Thank you John,, the graduated sky is a natural occurring event there, this was taken just shortly before sunrise and the sun was rising to the right while the dark thunderhead off to the left remained somewhat ominous,, as I look at this image today though, I should have tried to pull a little detail from that thunderhead as it does appear to be almost solid white

Thank you John,, as stated above, that hot spot on the cloud was a natural event as well and I didnt realize it was almost virtually white till I looked at the image today I should try and roll that down a tad by placing a control point on there and try and get some detail from that spot sometimes its good to let your Post Processing sit for a day and look at is then prior to posting

Re: Daytona Beach Florida

Love Silver Efex, Jim! I think you did a great job with the conversion on both. I will say I like the subject and composition of the first a bit more, but that's quite subjective.

As for the hot cloud, I know we spend a lot of time trying to avoid "blinkies," but sometimes white highlights on clouds are...well...white. I don't find it terrbly objectionable. I will say, though, that I'd put a control point in the upper right corner, expand the circle significantly, then pull the brightness down to match the left side.

Nik has amazing capability that way!

Re: Daytona Beach Florida

Wowsers - I really like that first one Jim. The treatment really makes it look timeless, doesn't it? Very nice.
