Nikon 1 V1 Photowalk: Manitou Springs, CO

Antique Shop, Manitou Springs, CO

I had a really nice stroll through the town of Manitou Springs, CO the other morning with my Nikon 1 V1. Here are some of my favorite shots. Initial processing was in Nikon’s Capture NX2, although I did use Nik’s Silver Efex Pro 2 and Color Efex Pro 4 along with Flypaper Textures on some of the images to create a more artistic style.

  1. Speaking of Capture NX2… one point that went over my head originally. In your ebook, you mention sharpening to take out the anti-aliasing filter effect. I take it that is something that should be done up front in the processing work flow (?). Then you talk about output sharpening. Ok, do I have this right in that you recommend upfront anti-aliasing sharpening, followed by whatever processing one wants, followed by output sharpening? I realize that one has to always keep track of any noise that gets introduced by this work flow or was in the original capture… Thanks, Jim

  2. Jim-
    It’s all kind of a blend when you use CNX2 for sharpening, because its so easy to do selective sharpening (creative) combined with your “capture” sharpening. I do those together in one USM step (and sometimes add High Pass sharpening as a creative step). I add a second round of “output” sharpening after resizing for print/web.
