Shugborough Cottage - in black and white

 

Black and white version of the cottage featured a few days ago, thanks to Brian Walbey spotting Google's offer of the Nik Collection.  This uses Nik's Silver Efex Pro.

Quite crisp, Tom...but, I believe I would like a bit more black ink.
Tom Wilson: The effect is the result of hdr treatment on the colour version then B&W - the hdr reduces the depth of the shadows.

Très mignon. J'aime les formes arrondies.
Tom Wilson: Merci, Martine.

It still looks good Tom
Tom Wilson: Yes - I rather like this verison.
It certainly gives a different feel, doesn't it?
Tom Wilson: It does, doesn't it?
I quite like the result with this variety of grey tones Tom!
Tom Wilson: Me too, Richard.

An altogether different picture, Tom
Tom Wilson: Same house, different feel, I think.
It still looks just as small Tom.
Tom Wilson: Curious that, isn't it? smile
I love the cottage.
Tom Wilson: A lovely little building - obviously occupied, too, with the TV antenna and the garbage bin.
Looks good in B.& W.Tom, Silver Efex Pro is excellent isn't it.
Tom Wilson: It's an excellent tool, Brian - probably the best in the Nik Collection, I think. And the Collection works well with both Lightroom and Elements.
the image turned out great with the Nick's Silver Efex... i downloaded the product but my PS and PSE programs are almost as old as me Tomgrin....petersmile
Tom Wilson: Could be worth updating Elements, Peter - the Nik Collection seems to work happily with it.

Also - there's a way of working with the Nik programs as standalone: http://photo.stackexchange.com/questions/75907/can-the-nik-collection-be-used-without-photoshop-or-lightroom
