Rough around the edges

Here's something a little different. I like black and white photos, and dabble in that part of the photographic world sometimes.  I recently acquired the Complete Collection by Nik Software, which includes Silver Efex Pro, their black and white conversion tool.  It is pretty impressive and I have just scratched the surface with it - in other words, I have a lot to learn.  This is a photo from downtown Austin that I was messing around with, when I got the idea to try it with Silver Efex Pro.  Yes, it looks kinda weird, but I liked it.  I used their Antique Solarization setting, if you are familiar with the product.  Anyways, I won't be leaving the color world behind but thought I would share this one since I found it interesting!
