  1. So what software did you use to process these photos?


    • disperser says:

      It was a combination of programs . . .
      1) Lightroom CC to crop the original photo for composition

      2) this next color photo was the basis for the first two B&W photos and was processed in Nik Collection’s Color Efex Pro 4:

      3) the first of the B&W is the above photo treated to the B&W filter in Color Efex Pro. The second B&W photo was also from the above version but converted in Lightroom with a modification to one of their B&W presets.

      4) the third version is from this next color photo which was generated using Luminar 4 and then tweaked in Color Efex 4 and Lightroom CC.

      5) That photo was then converted using Nik Collection Silver Efex Pro 2.0 to generate the third B&W photo.
