I really love your first version its softness makes it more beautiful, like her.

Hope you don't mind my play, I upload all plays as private only I can view. I'm trying to learn B&W conversions in particular but I seem to like contrasty and bright and sometimes the eyes get too dark and contrasty, so I hope you don't hate it. I'll take it down if you want. I don't have a willing model lately.



I did some curves, levels, channel mixer monochrome and adjusted contrast to the left and the others a to the right until I liked it. I'm really new to this and if anyone has tips I'd appreciate them. Oh and I played with the depth of field adjustments on Paint Shop Pro 12.

NikonMom - love what you've done with the photo. I don't mind everyone working with any image I post -- I learn from observing and hearing your comments.

Sorry for coming to this thread so late but I really love the first image too. Not much more needed in my opinion.
