Re: I have changed my mind.

The best part of Capture NX is the Color Control Point(U Point Technology) feature. In the image below, I darkened the entire image using Exposure Compensation. I then placed a Color Control Point(CCP) so that the circle just encompessed the Burrowing Owl. I brightened, satured and added contrast to just the bird, all by working the sliders. No masking, not selections, no nothing. It took about 30 seconds to make the subject pop from the background. This is but one of many features.

The U Point Technology is being offered as a PS plugin for $250 in a program called Viveza. Google that name and watch the demo for the water lily. I called NIK Software and confirmed that the technology in Viveza is identical to Capture NX in regards to CCPs.

Hope that that helps.

Hugh
