I originally bought the Nik plugin package solely for Silver Efex Pro and then - when seeing there were other options that I might use - I got this kindle book as well as its companions, thinking that I would possibly get round to using at some time. Then the online course that I am undertaking started to introduce sharpening in one of the modules and I took the plunge of investing time - given a good initial experience with the companion Silver Efex Pro book.
.........How pleased I am with the time investment.........
The book is simple and fits in well with the previous read, with style and layout being familiar.
My first attempt, albeit clumsy in comparison to the excellent included worked examples was simply stunning. The 24MB landscape holiday image that was well focused, with a sensible histogram and pleasing "in-camera" result, (which I felt pretty proud of upon capture - you can just tell can't you!) was transformed into a sharp, almost 3D-like picture - and a quantum leap in quality - and all done at the airport on my laptop whilst waiting through the 2 hour weather delay for my flight.
An easy, but succinct, read, well worth the small investment of money and will be referred to frequently in the months to come as clumsy attempts become more refined. Recommended.
