Stacy @ visualventuring.com is arranging “After Before Friday”. This week Emilio Pasquale took the photo and the participants are all giving it their own personal look.
From the RAW file I made 3 exposures and turned it into HDR. Then I turned it duotone and blurred out some parts.

The only thing I did here was to add vignette using the raw file in Photoshop
I decided to try out Silver Efex for this black& white photo. Normally I use Photoshop for my editing, but Jeff mentioned Silver Efex and then I suddenly remembered that I have a version installed. I’m not so familiar with the S.Efex software, so I can only do basic stuff, but it’s quite easy to maneuver and the GUI is user-friendly.
In my opinion both the results are pleasing and Silver Efex was easy to use (even for a Photoshopper like myself).
I chose a photo that I shot in the botanical garden here in Oslo. The color version has been edited in Photoshop and the only thing I did was to add some vignette using the raw file.
For the B/W version I changed the structure and contrast in Silver Efex Pro, then I Used Photoshop to add a brightness/contrast layer and a small touch of vignette with the Lens correction filter.
– Changed the structure and contrast in Silver Efex Pro. – Added brightness/contrast layer, plus a vignette with the Lens correction filter in Photoshop.
Now I’ll try to catch up on some commenting and blog reading 🙂
