Playing with Topaz Adjust

I've owned Topaz Adjust for over a year, but don't use it nearly enough. When Clueless in Boston suggested a Black and White Treatment for this photo, I decided to see what Topaz Adjust could do.

Bubbles Attract

First I applied the Lightroom Antique preset:
Old Tyme Popcorn

Then I brought it into Topaz Adjust and used an HDR preset, which gave the bubbles a little more 'Pop':
Old Tyme Popcorn 2

I couldn't stop with just one photo, so here are two more:

These two couldn't stop nipping at each other....
Say Hello

And it was way too hot to sit outside to eat.
Too Hot To Sit Outside

Fortunately, the temperatures have cooled off and we received some much needed rain! I hope you have a great day.

It looks like a fun program and I like what you've done with the photos.

I LOVE your bubble pic, so very nice! :-)

Very interesting converting it into B+W. Now, I'm not sure which version I like better, though I think toward the original. :) But you never know until you try it out.

I used to (and sometimes still do) use Nik silver effex pro, but now I just usually convert to b+w in Adobe Camera Raw (ACR) or in Photoshop, then I might apply a warming tone to it.

I really like your final shot today. It is (almost) monochromatic, and with no people visible, has a timeless feel to it.

I haven't been here in a little bit so I'm catching up. Love the converted photos...those bubbles absolutely do pop. And your 50mm shots rock!

Forgot to mention...the last shot of the chairs is wonderful!
