Having been a Topaz user for some time , and loving their BW Effects 2,I just added the Nik suite free download ( I had Cfx3 in NX2)
The Topaz software mirrors many of the features in Silver Efex, but adds to it with really useful tools such as Adaptive Exposure.
Well worth a look, and still being developed, unlike the Google/Nik stuff, I think. Selling off cheap doesn't suggest a continuing commitment .
Topaz DeNoise also compares well, & I find the other Topaz software very useful.
I do like the Nik HDR, and may use it more than Photomatix-controls sem more intuitive.
