Hunt’s Photo and Video Melrose is hosting a photo contest on their Facebook page. The prize is a copy of Nik Color Efex Pro 4. To enter, you submit a photo edited with Color Efex Pro 4 (CEP4). I downloaded the free trial of CEP4 and tried it on several of my HDR photos. One of them was the “Lake Sebu Sunrise” photo I posted a while back. I wasn’t quite pleased with the original image I posted, and I think I said something about that in my previous post – something like “the best I could do for now”. Well, I opened up the image in CEP4 plug-in for Aperture 3 and applied one filter, the contrast color range filter. Wow, I think the image looks much better now. What do you think?
