Adobe Lightroom - Silver Efex Pro 2

I got my hands on a silver efex pro 2 plug software for adobe lightroom and wanted to test it out. What I found is that it took my contrast to 11 and im not sure if I like it yet or not. I am not a big big fan of spending to much time on each image as I try and keep it as simple as possible with doing as little extra work as possible.

I spoke about local adjustments and I know you can do that right in lightroom itself but wanted to try it out in the software itself. The different film presets are very interesting, I am not sure I would be able to tweak the software myself to get anything close. That is a major time saver if you are looking for a specific type of film look when you are editing.

So far it seems to be an interesting piece of software that I will have to spend more time on. For now I ordered two 24×36 lustre prints from AdoramaPix to see which file I like more.
