I'm sure to many of you, Silver Efex Pro is old news. I've know about the software for a while now, but had been content with using the tools built into Lightroom. I took the plunge recently and installed Silver Efex Pro to see what it could do for me, and what a world of difference. It's almost like being in the darkroom again. Being able to selectively work with parts of the images to control exposure and contrast is great.
The images below were processed with the new (to me) software; I believe they may be a bit over processed, but I don't really care. Experimenting is part of the process of learning the new tool. I'm sure over time I'll dial it back again.
