    Hi and welcome,

    I'm sorry, but I don't understand the question enough to answer.
    I think we'll need to know what you have now, for example; a paper print, film negative, digital image file.
    And then what you want to get, before we can advise you.

    Regards,

    Hi and welcome from me too.

    I'm also having trouble understanding your question - Are you asking "Is it possible to change a colour photo to a black and white one, and if so, how do you do it"?

    Cheers,

    Re: From colour to black & white

    Wil je de bestanden uit je camera zwart wit maken of wil je bestaande afdrukken op een of andere manier zwart wit maken?

    (translation: Do you want to make files or prints in B/W )


    @ Colin
    Babelfish or really some comprehension of Dutch?
    In case of Babelfish: your Babelfish is better then mine.


    edit, you answer already before i ask you something i just notice.

    Google for the small stuff, Dutch clients for bigger stuff - and learning a bit myself along the way!

    You asked for advice on your portfolio photos.

    1. An interesting scene, but perhaps hardly enough colour to make it work as a colour photo. Perhaps convert to black and white? Also, I know the trees were probably not vertical when you took the shot, but perhaps it might work better if you rotate the photo slightly to make the trees stand up vertically more? The black tree trunk at the left of the photo adds nothing, and maybe consider cropping this out of the photo?
    2. I love this one. Only thing I would suggest is to tone down the bright highlight.
    3. Another visually appealing photo. I find the colour too yellow - perhaps it really was this colour in real life, but I wonder if you can adjust the white balance to make the photo more blue?
    4. This is the weak photo in your portfolio. What are you trying to say? Perhaps there is something about the storks on the left and the weather vane bird on the right? The photo lacks impact. The tower on the right is too far out of the photo and the sky, which dominates the shot, is too grey and boring. Sorry if I sound critical, please don't be discouraged!

    Regards,
    Graham
