also here: http://ken-gilbert.com/nsop/re-edits/IMG_7394.CR2
hopefully you can pull down the CR2 from that link, if not i'll get Ken to help me in the morning.

basically the point of this is to see how everyone would edit this shot as a Black & White! or as Ken might say, make is shades of gray. :D

here is the link to how i did it: http://newschoolofphotography.com/lightbox-sharing-critique/27837-b-w-my-continued-attempt-doing-good-conversion.html


i added another RAW file, this one is of a girl in a shower, shot with an A900 the night i had a battery die and forgot to bring my backup. have fun playing with it as well. :D

I of course like mine, but I like Eric's too. I just prefer harsher. Erics is smoother.

Oh I like this Craig. Very nice. Very flattering for the model indeed.

Thanks!

For what it's worth, her lips were quite pale when I made the main B & W conversion, so I removed them from the mask and made a separate conversion for just the lips to make them stand out a bit more...

Boredom set it for me tonight so I thought I'd give both your pics a go around.
