Great set Phil

The tonal range on these is superb. Does it take a lot of time to process through silver fx? I use LR and it takes about 5-10 minutes per shot. I may have to look into silver fx.

I love seeing your images! I have been considering the 50mm 1.4G lens, and it is good to see you used it for these shots.

Thanks kimchi

For a straight conversion, using Color and the Silver Efex, it takes around 3 minutes per shot, ending up with a colour and b&w version. Some are more complicated than others. This one, for example, required a tonal contrast layer in Color Efex brushed on, followed by a neutral b&w layer in Silver Efex and then a brushed High Structure layer in Silver Efex. I like the result though!

Thanks RexGig - I'm finding it good for street, and it's pretty small compared to the Sigma version I looked at.

I managed to get a good 2nd hand version for a good price, otherwise the 1/8G would have been my choice. I need f1.4 a lot as well though
