    Impressive work people. Hard to choose, but it's done.

    Isn't it ironic that the two highest rated photos in our coloring process contest are black and white?

    ... didn't even see this one going! I thought only the macro contest was on ...
  4. Not really, if you're familiar with the software. Even beyond the standard B&W filter, Color Efex actually has a bunch of different monochrome filters which I don't even know if it's possible to replicate in Silver Efex. It's also a great finishing tool for images that come out of Silver Efex. I prefer to add things like grain and vignetting (through darken/lighten center) here rather than in Silver Efex, especially given that I think the preview options work better in CFX.

    I guess then if anyone thought Color Efex was just for colour: myth busted! I wouldn't buy it just for that, but it's a nice feature. If only they'd spell the word colour correctly...

    I'm glad you added through darken/lighten centre, as the actual vignetting part of Colour Efex is disgustingly awful in every way..... :smile:
  7. Lol, I'm glad I found the Darken/lighten centre first. Tried the vignette filter later, shrugged, went back to the first method.

    Definitely a great set. Nik Software ultimately won here, since I downloaded all the demos. Maybe more hopped on board. :smile:
