Yes Nik is my favorite collection and I use pretty much all of the programs. Silver Efex 2 is the best B&W converter in the business. I highly recommend their suite.

It is probably ONE of the most used Suites in my workflow, its fantastic! I am a big fan of HDR Efex as well as Silver Efex and the sharpening tools.

I also use Totally Rad RadLab and onOne Photo Suite 8 as well. All great tools, mostly depending on what type of photography.

For my portraiture work, I live by Totally Rad Pro Retouch 2.0.

so I downloaded the trial version, and it seems really well polished. wish I had more time to really explore the features.

It's definitely worth the torrent. lol.

I use HDR Efex Pro 2 and Silver Efex, and I've played with the others like Viveza, they're all top of the line.
I definitely prefer HDR Efex over Photomatix Pro for HDR's, and Silver Efex is great for emulating film and B&W conversion/manipulation in general.

I have it but rarely ever use it. I may just go one week where I just use color *** and another week where I only use silver ***.
