While playing around, I might as well go into Silver Efex 2.

Nice effect but I prefer the version of yesterday in color

13 Mar 2011 6:28am

@Marie LC: I do too because of the pink blossoms. That's what caused me to take the photograph in the first place.

Ummm, to my eyes a bit too much going on for mono. You need the colour to help you see the main focus points

@CElliottUK: I think that you are probably right.

One of my favourite pieces of software, instantly makes some great one click mono effects. Nice to have the work taken off your shoulders.

Sounds like someone spent some serious money on plug-ins. :-)
I do like the sketch-like effects in this version.

13 Mar 2011 3:54pm

@Harry: fortunately, i have purchased my plug-ins over several years. i think that the topaz plug-ins are the best bang for the buck
