Some serious playing around in the Google Nik Collection, specifically the black and white options in Silver Efex Pro. Ah, I always had dreams of having a dark room and processing film and doing stuff like this. And now we can do it all digitally. It’s incredible.
Just a simple shot of the tree outside my window, but I wanted to bring out the texture of the clouds in the background. Dropped a lot of the artifacts and border stuff that was trying to make it look old timey. I like things simple. I think something can look elegant and old timey without all the fake scratches and torn edges.
