I have been tempted to buy silver efex for a while now, I may pull the trigger in 2014. :D But someone recently recommend onone's software, so I guess I will have to try both demos. :)

I have both, but almost always go with SE

What is it about SE that you prefer over anone? the pictures here have great textures and details and the sample video they showed on onones website looked like a lot of the detail was lost, but that might have just been the picture he was using and being a video and not a high quality jpg.

Another great one! The head tilt and upward gaze, the hat, and the grain all combine to make it a classic, ageless portrait. Well done!

ty very much, I loved how all those elements worked in that shot. When Alex came out in that outfit I though..."hmm Hollywood mid-thirties black and white"

GerryDavid, do the trial to see which program you like best. My preference is SE
what I like most is there are lots of presets I use to start. they are in catagories like : Modern, Classic, and Vintage. as you click thru the presets in each(each has a thumbnail preview to show you what it'll look like in the window), this cuts down time playing with every slider or filter. When you see one that's promising , click on it and the pic in the main view changes to that. then you tweak it with the sliders and filters to bump up(or down ) contrast, structure, grain, vignette etc... I have the OnOne suite but find SE to be very easy to work with to get exactly what I want.
the OnOne version is kinda cool too tho, both have film presets to mimic the exact film type... you have presets like 3200 T-Max

Looks like it could be a decent webinar on Facebook marketing and the price (free) is right.

The class was interesting, I signed up for last nights just in case I could watch the 2nd half, but it was only an hour long, then after the class they sent me a link to watch it in the next 48 hours.

Its basically a sales pitch to buy her dvd's for more in depth details, but it gave some interesting info at the beginning.

Basically she said if you want more of your fans to see your posts, you have to have more likes, the more likes the more people see it since facebook considers your posts worth while. And recommended using pictures with posts to get more interest, likes, shares and comments.

At 400 fan's you can promote posts starting at $10, and at 5000 fans you can target those promoted posts to those you specify. As a local business im not sure how efficient our non targeted promoted posts would be. There is no point in advertising my senior portraits to those in hawaii or norway.

But doing that sort of thing may help get the likes until you get 5000 fans. Im just 3800 fans away, hehe.

I watched the video, too. I just ran a targeted ad campaign using a $50 credit from my web host. I only have 130 likes, so if you're looking at a targeted campaign, you can do it sooner. It may be different for specific posts but at least there is a targeted option.

Taking a break from photography for a bit to recharge the batteries. These were taken with my now sold 1DS MIII. Keeping all my lens for awhile untill I decide to keep shooting Canon, switch to Sony/Nikon or just give it up altogether. I hate this time of year.

My sister, the professional baker and cake decorator once told me that my camera takes great pics. My reply was that I thought her oven baked great cakes.:lol:
