Some images taken during a recent spring time walk around Stroud Preserve.
All images were shot in ‘traditional’ HDR bracket fashion, and processed into a ‘raw’ combined HDR file.
Normally, I use Adobe Photoshop to do my B&W conversion, but since the Google/Nik Software upgrade, I now had a chance to play with Silver Efex Pro 2.

Photoshop is great for doing a straight conversion via the native B&W menu, but to explore other options, quickly, and then build on them, Silver Efex Pro is the answer.
I still used Photoshop to tweak the final files, but I ended up in a different place than I originally envisioned.
So, what do you think?
