It took nearly a week to find the right balance of grunge, but I finally got 'round to processing Trisha Bradshaw's Bond girl into the Dark City series. This picture is straight out of Nik HDR Efex Pro using a custom single image tone mapping I call "Dark Vintage". Many thanks to Trisha, makeup artist Sarah Lynn and Susan Page.
This is the base image, color corrected in Lightroom 3 and level adjusted in Photoshop CS5.
So how could I resist the new "Film Noir 1" preset in Nik Silver Efex Pro 2, with green filter and blue/sepia split tone.
Exploring the new selective color tool in Nik Silver Efex Pro 2, with dark blue toner and green filter, Trisha becomes something of a vamp.
Working the night shift for "CSI Miami" thanks to Nik Color Efex Pro.
And finally, a gritty Fresson from Nik Color Efex Pro.
