If a software program will help me realize what I envisioned when I made a photo, I use it without reservation. These images were process in Silver Efex Pro from Nik Software.
I find they come up like film processed in Rodinal developer from Agfa. That's darkroom talk folks, from another era.
Still, I like the results. These are from Place de la Concorde, National Assembly, Champs Elysee and Notre Dame.
