The neighborhood owl
When I was walking the dogs one evening, I heard an owl and saw him way up in a tree. I thought he was probably passing through, and maybe had stopped to rest. Then I heard, and saw him a second time in the same area. So before it got too dark one evening I grabbed my camera and went to find him. And there he was in the same tree, in the middle of a neighborhood. The fact that he hangs out here is amazing to me. Hopefully nobody will harm or harass him, or her, and he’ll hang out for a while.
This is the same photo edited in Nik color Efex.
This photo was edited in Nik Analog Efex.
I’m showing you these edited photos in case you haven’t heard about the Google Nik Collection. The Nik collection has been $150 up until the other day. Then Google decided to make it free. The speculation is that Google is probably not going to support the program much longer, so they decided to make it free for everyone. This is a program I have always wanted, and free works out great for me. And probably you too.
Nik Silver Efex. I really like this part of the program.
The program works through other photo editing programs. Lightroom, photoshop, aperture, and essentials. And maybe others too, but I don’t know for sure. The website to check it all out, and get your free download is Google Nik Collection.
I have only played with it a little bit, but I can see that there is a lot this program can do.
