After too many hours spent sitting on trains over the weekend I desperately needed some exercise today so I decided to go for a brisk walk around the village with my camera and nifty fifty lens. Given today’s interminably grey weather it seemed appropriate to shoot images which would work in black and white. I’ve recently downloaded the trial version of Nik Silver Efex Pro as I’d heard great things about it as a black and white conversion tool. It seems that, on this occasion, all the hype is justified and I love the creative effects it offers. The only downside is that I now need to save up enough pennies to buy the full version when my trial runs out!
