With the ever increasing popularity of photography it is no surprise that we seem to live in a world full of post processing plugins and applications. Fortunately for us photographers, the cream always rises to the top. This image of Upper Tumwater Falls was processed with one of the applications that I consider the cream of the crop, Perfect Photosuite 7 from OnOne Software, and more specifically their newly released Perfect B&W. I was a big fan of Suite 6, but they have really upped the game with Suite 7. My biggest problem with Suite 6 was that there seemed to be a big gap in the lineup, there was no black and white application, you could do good black and whites with their other applications, but Nik’s Silver Efex Pro stayed in my stable of applications. That all changed with Suite 7 which introduced Perfect B&W. This post isn’t meant to be an in depth review of the new Suite 7, but I will say this, I have uninstalled Silver Efex Pro from my machine.
As for this image, this is the Upper Tumwater Falls in Tumwater, WA. These falls are part of a series of falls that are in the shadow of the old Olympia Beer brewery. I made this image back in May and it has just been sitting on my HD since. I hope you enjoy the image, and I hope that you will consider taking a look at Perfect Photosuite 7. With as much as I talk up OnOne Software, I should probably sign up to be an affiliate. :-)
