Today I am sharing two versions of the same image. For the color image I used NIK HDR Efex Pro 2 to merge the three frame bracket set. I applied the default preset and then returned it to Aperture 3 for contrast and color adjustments.

I decided to try  OnOne Perfect B&W to convert the color HDR into a black and white HDR image. I started with the default B&W setting that OnOne Perfect B&W provided and tweaked it to adjust the contrast until it was the way I wanted it.  Not much more I can say about this one.
