Nik Software’s HDR Efex Pro was a great tool to have in my HDR tool box.  I was stoked to find out HDR Efex Pro 2 had been released late this Summer.  Just when you thought HDR Efex Pro couldn’t get much better, the upgrade came along and topped its predecessor!   HDR Efex Pro 2 brings new life to the tone mapping business with its plethora of awesome additions and presets.

If you haven’t checked out HDR Efex Pro 2 yet, I implore you to as it will definitely find a place in your HDR workflow.   Check out the review, the before and after image, and the tutorial embedded below.

f.64 Academy and f.64 Elite are the brainchildren of Blake Rudis. While he is a landscape photographer he is most passionate about post-processing images in Photoshop and mentoring others.

For Blake, it is less about the art and more about the process. He dives deep into difficult topics and makes them easy to understand through his outside the box thinking.
