So, I just got my copy of SEP2(Nik's silver efex pro 2) I have been using the trial version for about a month now and really love it. I want to learn how to use it even more and I think the best way is to do a side challenge.

Anyone interested in this side must have one of the two versions of SEP, preferably SEP2. Post photos both in B&W and color(I've heard you can use it to enhance color photos as well) If you discover any new techniques while using this software PLEASE SHARE!!! I want this to be a learning side challenge not just a photo sharing side challenge.

If you do not have SEP or SEP 2 and want to participate, no worries. Just download the free 15 day trial version here:SEP 2 15 day trial If you already have the trial version and will run out before the side challenge starts you can call and get a one time 15 day extension on the trial.

I know this is short notice so let me know if you are interested so I can get a list going in the next day or two.

Yes, I frequently use a b/w layer with a blend mode over the color version. Works nicely for some shots.

Put me down for this. Haven't upgraded yet, but I may do so soon.

Please count me in. I used it for the first time with my Weston image and really want to do more with it. I've got to get ready for processing my images from our upcoming trip to Yosemite!

I'll probably play, too, keep my sweetie company and all :-)

Jennifer, I'm happy to post, I fell off the SC bandwagon in March.

What are the expectations? I can't post color versions of my images because they don't exist. ;) So I'll pass if it's a before/after SC. However, if it's about posting images that were processed with SEP/2, then sure, coun't me in.
04/01/2011 12:28:19 AM · #17
Me too, I'm in, for one every other day or so.
04/01/2011 12:32:17 AM · #18
I'm in, but not likely to make every day.

I should have worded that better, you don't need to post a color version. I was just saying this isn't simply a B&W side challenge because I have heard you can use SEP to enhance color photo's as well.

Great, count me in as I often post in the BW side challenge, so I'll put them here as well.
