While I really enjoy all of the products that Nik Software has to offer, Perfect Photo Suite 7 has some extra flexibility and presets that Nik does not. I wish that I had been using a combination of both tools all along. but I am glad that I finally decided to give it a try, and I am one hundred percent sold on the benefits of using both tools!
I did quite a bit of editing on this photo, as I took several shots in an attempt to get the light streaks in the road the exact way that I wanted them. I also used a combination of a couple of processing techniques in order to get the exact effect that I wanted for the night sky and the skyline itself, and I combined those two photos in order to achieve my background, then I used layering to get the lights streaks exactly how I wanted them. This photo took quite a while to edit, but I am quite happy with the result, and I hope that you enjoy it!
