learning black & white is not that Black & White!

Been at it nearly all weekend, trying to transform an image to black & white by not using presets!
I tried to get a more rugged looking Paul! sorry Paul!
So now I have an aching back, sore butt from sitting to long, tired/strained eyes and an achy wrist!

For some reason my image of Paul would not load with the others!

Some very nice B&W shots there Jenny.

I guess Paul rates a separate post! :D

Nice shots.



Easiest way to get a B&W is to remove all color saturation if you are using something like Lightroom or Photoshop. Then if you want a more vivid B&W up the contrast just a bit. But don't go too far or you start losing detail.
