Here's another image from our trip to Star Iron & Metals last week. This image is a "team" effort between my wife Pam and I: The image is courtesy of Pam and the post-processing is from me. Pam took this close-up of the end of a pipe and I ran it through Lightroom and Nik Software's Silver Efex Pro to get this final image.
I'm just starting to play around with Silver Efex pro and so far all I can say is "Wow!" To my eye the conversion of a full color image to black and white is amazing. There are so many options and it is super easy to use. I plan on taking a number of my images and running through Silver Efex Pro just to see what can be done. I think I'll be happy with the results!
