Back in February, we took a family trip to Scorhill (pronounced scoril) stone circle on the Eastern edge of Dartmoor. The photos have lingered on my hard drive ever since, until a friend recommended Nik Software’s Silver Efex Pro software for doing monochrome conversions. It seems an incredibly powerful piece of software and makes monochrome conversions a breeze. These two photos are my first attempts at playing (admittedly without too much thought) with the 15 day free demo. I’ve deliberately processed them dark to accentuate the wildness of the moor.
Whether I can afford, or justify, the 160 quid to take the software beyond 15 days is another matter, but I think I would have found this very useful for my mono picture a week challenge last year.
