Wonderful black and whites with Nik Silver Efex pro 2 (comparison with LR3)

May 29, 2011


In one of our field trips in the dessa’s of the Extremadura we had a brief encounter with a large group of goats. We took some pictures of them and then i noticed in the background this man sitting there with his dog. I walked towards him and asked if i could take some pictures of him and his dog. He raised his shoulders and said “ok if that is what you want, go a head”.

I took two shots with my Sony A700 and the Tamron 200-500mm in the 200mm position and this was the best. I like the way both him and the dog look the say direction;->
when i took the shot i already had a nice black and white conversion in mind.

So i used the black and white mix possibilities in Lightroom to make it B/W. It looked nice but it was not what i had in mind. So i used the same RAW file and converted it with Nik Silver Efex Pro 2 into my self made preset. I love the high light details in this conversion.
