This is a shot from a pro bono job I worked on recently. Even though I was a volunteer and working for free, there is still some pressure to bring back better images than the “amateurs”. For this shot, the first instinct might be to move in close, but I think the real picture is the crowd’s reaction to drop of the banner from the top of the building.
Just this evening I download the trial version of Nik Silver Efex Pro 2 and am putting it through its paces. I have only tried it out on a few images, but so far I am impressed even though I did not want to be given the almost $200 price tag.
