I was catching up on some photography sites today and following the best of 2008 lists. One post that caught my eye was from David Ziser’s Digital ProTalk. He writes that everyone needs to check out Nik’s software Color Efex Pro. And so I did.
I took a washed out shot from yesterday’s hike and I put it through Nik’s filters. For a number of reasons, I would usually just delete a shot like this one. Poor exposure, so-so composition and overall just a flat image.
Using a few filters from Nik, this was the result. Although I am still not keen on the composition, the ability to transform the image is quite impressive. Check out the videos here. Amazing software.
