    Playing with Black and White.

    Have been trying my hand (yes, again) with b/w and mutilated a couple of quite nice colour shots of a swan.

    How are they coming across? Good, bad, needs work? etc.

    Highly appreciate any tips, suggestions, techniques, anything, that will help me improve.

    Thanks.

    The first one is an excellent BW conversion. It is a "must turn it in BW" I think.

    The second is mute and boring. You could try with higher constrast with an S curve I think.

    Thanks Miltos.

    Guess I still cannot decide what should be contrasty and what should not in b/w.

    Will take your suggestion and see what comes up.

    The shape of the swan in the first is really lovely and the conversion is very good indeed!

    Totally agree with Miltos about the second .

    Thanks Sharon.

    I am working on #2 but probably way beyond my skill level to get it to where it should be. Aborting that and better to get a fresh shot and work on that instead.

    No one have comments on #3 ??

    Bobo...

    2 and 3 don't work ...but the first one does. I would say that can give you a learning curve to work with.

    Thanks again Sharon, appreciate the comments.

    3 is not bad in the colour version maybe it is the crop or something. Need to restudy that one.
