    Boatman in the rain B&W conversion

    I am still having fun experimenting with combining NIK filters and choosing rejects from my files to play with. This are shot is from several years ago on the Li River in China... I used several NIK filters from both Color Efex Pro and Silver Effex Pro to end up with this. Please comment.

    Lovely, Richard. SE can become very powerful when you use it in layers, and you can quite quickly find a few different combinations which gives you a signature look.

    There's definitely a neutral layer in here, plus a little high structure - anything else?

    Nice range of tones Richard and I like the way that the trees have been rendered in the background to let the figure stand out.

    Nicely done Richard - looks like one of the cormorant fishermen (minus his birds). I personally don't care for the frames that come with the Nik package, but that is just my taste.

    This guy wasn't a cormorant fisherman (at least not at this moment) he was a souvenier salesman (called a "Hello Guy") polling out to a Li River tour boat to sell genuine (you bet they are!) jade figurines to the tourists...

    Not an easy way to earn a living...
