This is Wk 2 of the July One Four Challenge – working on this lovely night scene of the Wellington waterfront taken by a beginner photography friend. I am using her image to show her what can be done in post processing, and hopefully encourage her to move in that direction when she is ready.
Of course I turned to my old friend Nik Silver Efex for some BW treatments, and I wanted to show some of the variations and scope it is capable of, so I have THREE images for you, you lucky people 🙂
The one above is using Antique Plate, settings unchanged but I adjusted the colour tone to be a slightly warmer gold. I like the old fashioned feel.
Here are two more traditional BW – I wasn’t sure how the night shot would come across but there were plenty of choices. Because it was a night shot all the lamps are lit and I really like how that looks in these shots.
So there you go, three different images all from the same program – Nik Silver Efex. Which one do you like and why?
