A couple posts ago, I talked about "Knowing Your Imaging Software". One of the plugins that I keep running across whether it be fine art nature photographers or wedding photographers is Nik Software's Color Efx Pro filters. So the other night I downloaded the demo and took it for a spin. It was a lot of fun. After playing around with several of the filters, I tried applying them to various images. The two blog images show the before (top) and after results for one image. The original image from the Portland Rhododendron Garden was good, but after adding a touch of the fog and midnight filters I ended up with an image which better conveys the emotion I intended. I also used Nik's Viveza plugin to brighten up the stairway just a touch. What do you think?
