    Snapshot into portrait

    I was experimenting with the NIK software Color Effex and Silver Effex Pro II (plus some Photoshop CS6) and I like the results.

    Here is the original color image:

    Here is the edited image in a low key rendition:

    Here is another portrait with some totally different processing; More of a higher key rendition::

    NIK software has many different B&W conversions. However, we must remember that Photoshop Elements 10 also has some rather nice B&W conversions...

    The edited version works well. I wonder however whether the white line around the inside of the frame detracts from the portrait (but then I'm looking at the photo on an iPad).

    Second one down is a good 'Pictorial Portrait' -- you should enter it into some photo Exhibitions. The colour version is too 'Ordinary'.

    Thank you Peter. I shot the image about three-years ago and never did anything with the color version since I really didn't like it at all. However, I have recently been working with the NIK Software Suite combined with Photoshop CS6 for post processing and have been playing with some old images. This was especially true while my Internet was down due to my dog chewing the data cable.

    Most of the images of this young lady that I worked with are nudes or semi nudes and cannot be posted. However, I really think that many of the options provded by NIK and added to the capabilities of CS6 enable me to resurrect some old images which I never cared much about when I shot them...
