Processing in Black & White

Having had a recent day out in Windsor and Henley, a couple of images shot with the Fuji X-Pro1 and processed using Nik Silver Efex. As opposed to using one of the many available presets, each has been individually processed, and then further processed in Adobe Lightroom before re-sizing in Photoshop.

For sure, I'd like to fine-tune my processing, and really specialise more with black and white images - not simply relying on programs such as Silver Efex, or Lightroom actions or presets, but to be able to work on each image individually, whilst finding that individual style other Photographers make very much their own.

In the meantime, Silver Efex Pro offers fantastic control and options for black and white processing and in my personal view the very best option if you're looking for optimal control of images converted to black and white.
