Yet one more elevator — this time cement instead of grain. Fully read in on how they work and completely up to speed on Buffalo.
First attempt with TopazLabs Topaz B&W Effects, pretty much a rip off of Nik's Silver Efex Pro II. Similar controls but the NIK UI is more elegant and the sliders update on the fly rather than when let go — but with the Nik stuff at 6.5x the price there should be some difference. Sky was a somewhat noisy so destructured in Viveza 2 and Glamour Glowed in Color Efex Pro then masked to isolate the effects. Storage bins dodged and burned.
Likely the last of the Sea Cruise posts for a while. Canon 7D, EF 24-70 f/2.8 at 30mm, f/5.6, 1/320, ISO 100.
