    Warming in the sun

    Took this photo while I was getting ready for a family photo shoot in a local park last weekend.
    It was just a grab shot to test camera settings and I was quite pleased with how it came out.
    The woman had just sat down on the bench and I saw her close her eyes, lift her face to the sun and enjoy the warmth.
    Just loved the expression and sense of contentment in this image.
    I have posted a before and after but would really like some input from my peers as to what might improve this image.
    Cheers, Greg

    Harsh lighting conditions, as is this image, often lend themselves to superior B&W images...try it.

    Really don't know what I'm doing with B&W conversions but anyway here it is.

    One more trick ya might try...select the lady and do the conversion separately on her and the background.
