tangled and rusty

This is a tighter shot of the pile of chairs in the photo posted earlier in the week. The black and white conversion was done with Nik Silver Efex Pro. If you're interested in doing great fine art black and white conversions, this is a piece of software that you have to get. It is truly revolutionary in the control and mood you can place in an otherwise ordinary photo, and the number of tonal options is unbelievable. Recently, I've been working with the U-Point Technology control points in the program, where you can create areas of varying exposure and contrast - really great for evening out a photo made in hard light like this one. Check out Silver Efex here.

  1. I just might check-out that there nik Silver Efex, looks like it does a fine job.

    I like how you got in very close and turned this more into a photograph of shapes rather than things. The use of nik Silver Efex was perfect.
