Bob, your two BW conversions on this page are amazing. Care to share your method. Such drama wrapped up in them.

Rirakuma, also liked your BW head shot. Classic James Dean kind of presence.

Jako, colors in the stairwell shot were exceptional.

Both were converted using Silver Efex Pro v.2. However, the first required a lot of playing with luminance channels in the color version along with added vignetting. Once in Silver Efex, I chose a preset to bring out more structure and contrast (can't remember which one).

For the second shot, I wanted to bring out the texture in the sky and give it an almost HDR look. I have a recipe in Color Efex Pro that combines bleach bypass with their 'Monday Morning' preset which I then modified further to reduce the blur effect but keep the micro contrast and desaturated in Silver efex for the finished image.

Thanks for asking!

rji2goleez: also love the black and white shots. Being originally from WI, milwaukee holds a special place in my heart (or liver).

I've said it before and I'll say it again:
Sometimes I see people saying that the 35/1.4 ZE/ZF isn't sharp wide open. That's complete nonsense (or I must have an exceptionally sharp copy).

35/1.4 @ f1.4:

Bob, thanks for the tips. I have the prior version of Silver Efex and Color Efex. I will play around with some images that I think might have similar lighting to see where you were headed with the Bleach Bypass and Monday Morning. I use bleach bypass with some reduced opacity when headed into BW as well. Never had tried the Monday Morning for that, though.

Did you ever have Silver Efex 1, and if so, is 2 worth the upgrade? I like v.1, but I more often than not still use combinations of luminosity channel and channel mixer to do my conversions. Fine for portraits and simple things, but I am finding that lacking for landscapes.
