Silver Efex Pro 2 — Images from Upper Antelope Canyon outside Page, Arizona.

Nik recently upgraded its Silver Efex Pro plug-in for Photoshop CS5 to version 2. The following images of the Upper Antelope Canyon were taken during a Nikonians Academy workshop in Page Arizona lead by Winston Hall on this day in 2008. The raw images were processed with Capture One Pro, converted to tiff and transferred to Photoshop CS5, then converted to B&W using the new Silver Efex Pro plug-in. The conversion used the default “Fine Art #19” settings. Make a comment to this blog post, or send me an e-mail if you see the ghost in one of the images.

For additional images of Upper Antelope Canyon check out my 09-April-2008 blog and in our ShepartPhotography site.
