Reflections in HDR #2 - Three Variations

For processing this shot of clouds reflections in the high rise glass, I took a slightly different HDR single image HDR approach, using Nik HDR Efex and the "Old Vanilla" preset that can be downloaded from the Nik Software site as a starting point.  Then I adjusted levels in Photoshop CS5 and added by "CSI Miami" glow in Nik Color Efex Pro.  The overall effect is like shooting the old Agfa 400 sheet film.

This "straight" monochrome was made in Nik Silver Efex Pro using a red filter with a blue/sepia split tone applied in Lightroom 3.

Finally, I used the color shot to make a solarized version in Nik Color Efex Pro.
