So I have been playing around with my some new software Silver Efex Pro 2 and Topaz Adjust 5.  It is a slow process, but I am learning.  I really want to step my photos up a notch without over doing it.  I find myself getting so involved with editing that I am neglecting other things I should be doing.  Then I tell myself, show season doesn't start until June.  So I have lots of time to improve on my skills.  So I look to you my cyber friends to let me know how I am doing.  Good, bad or otherwise any and all comments and suggestions are helpful.  After all we are artists and we should be used to critiques.  So let me have it!

So the top photo......I first went into Topaz Adjust 5 and tweeked the details, then went to Silver Efex Pro 2, did some more tweeking, but I feel like something is missing.
The bottom photo I just used Topaz Adjust 5.
I'm really not sure which photo I like better.  What do you think?


  1. I really like both shots but I have to say the B&W really caught my eye. I'm not sure what it is but I just love the contrast and the textures.

  2. Nice shots. Gunna go with the mono shot :)
