Older image shot at one of Rolando's wkshops in Atlanta. Would like opinions on the conversion to B&W, and what might make this a stronger image from a processing standpoint. In particular I can't decide if the Gaussian blur is a little too strong or not.

Halley,

Thanks, this is really one of the 1st images where I've been pleased with the overall feel of the conversion.

Tim,

Thank you. Liked the feel of the image but was concerned that maybe I had gone a little overboard on the Gaussian blur. Tried going a little lighter both on the blur and in contrast/brightness but seemed to lose a little of the mystery / sensuality that I was seeing.

i don't think the GB is too strong. in fact, i think you did a great job of converting. my nitpix for the image would be some minor stuff with the lighting.
