Thus far, NIK SEP really is the only software I've used that tickles my fancy. I may end up there but until then I'll have some fun delving more deeply into Lightroom.
It would be an interesting exercise to do an image with SEP II, then try to duplicate it with LR. I don't think I have the LR skills to achieve the same thing.
I prefer using the NIK filters in Photoshop, since it places the effect on a separate layer. This makes tweaking very easy.
That certainly is appealing. I hadn't thought of that. I tend to do virtually all my post processing in Lightroom, then send a TIFF file to Photoshop for resizing, a final pass of Smart Sharpen and conversion to JPG for saving. When I've done layer work in PS it has always been related to special projects rather than photo processing. I know I'm missing out on much that makes PS such a powerful program. I'm rather scratching the surface.
