Love the black and white image, Don. Killer shot! Something about the color image that I'm not crazy about. Maybe it's the angle. Seeing how beautiful DeAnn is in person, this angle doesn't flatter her.

Thanks Christian...Im not real big on it either...I liked the lines of the tile and brick all leading to DeAnn and the lil monkey looking over her shoulder...might have tried a different pose with this angle....suggestions?

Poses? How's about me and DeAnn lying together on the banks of the river again...LOL! I like the monkey over the shoulder, too. Mayve if she was leaned into the image with her legs being more behind her instead of in front. It's tough to say without being there in the moment now to see what would work.

Hi Don, you've been busy!

I like the black and white one but, for my taste, it seems to lack a little bit of contrast. I play around with a duplicate overlay layer. the initial result can be a bit harsh but reduce the opacity to suit. I tried it on your photo and liked the results at 50%, hope you don't mind.

If you are interested, I discovered a workflow for converting to B+W that is meant to immitate the effect of coloured filters, but in PS.

Let me know and I'll post it for you.

Pete

Ok then

Attached is your image with a duplicate layer converted to overlay and then adjusted to 50% opacity. very simple but seems to crisp things up a bit.

if I was converting to black and white, do your main editing first then:

1.create a hue/saturation layer, save it as it is and set it to "colour"
2.create a second hue/saturation layer and reduce the saturation until it is B+W. save it and leave it as "normal".
3.go back into the colour layer and adjust the hue slider to taste. this has the effect of going through the various coloured filters and changes depending on the colours that in the pic. save when you are happy.
4.duplicate the colour layer and change it to "overlay". it may be very harsh to start but adjust opacity to suit. I find that if you switch the layer on and off, you get a better idea of the before and after change.

this sounds a bit long winded, but you soon get a preference of settings that can be made into an action. I tend to have the first couple of stages as an action and do the overlay bit for each photo.

any sharpening or cropping I do last.

hope this makes sense.

Pete

....I find this way a lot easier to get my head 'round than the chanel mixer or other ways.
