While sorting through my images from last fall I came across this version of the setting of the first concrete form for the north tower of the downtown span. I liked the composition and decided to try it as a monotone image. I used NIK Silver Efex Pro to convert it to monotone and applied a preset for an antique feeling. I then sent it back into Aperture 3 for final processing.

  1. This is an interesting application of this antique preset. Certainly the whitish vignetting keeps the eye within and focused on the image. IMHO Nik Silver Efex Pro 2 is the best B&W conversion tool out there.

    1. Thanks Nancy I agree that NIK does a fantastic job for Black and White conversions. I like using this preset with current image content to juxtapose modern vs period processing.
