I am quickly approaching the end of the 15 day trial period with Alien Skin Exposure, and am unsure whether I should try any other PS plug-ins before committing to this one.
If anyone has advice for me about other options (before I pay a bunch of money for this one), I would greatly appreciate it.
My workflow starts with raw and I currently use Aperture 3 and CS5. Many of the "virtual film" filters in the Exposure plug-in feel very natural to me, especially "Kodachrome 25" which was my favorite film when I last used non-digital cameras. This filter in particular has made a huge difference in the quality of my finished color and monochrome photos from the OM-D E-M5 -- currently my main camera.
I attached one landscape, one nature shot, and a portrait to give you an idea of the type of effects I have liked out of this package so far. More variety can be found on my site here--> http://gerafotografija.wordpress.com/images/
