    you lost a little in the foreground when going b/w. when you did the conversion, did you just do an "auto convert" or did you use the r/g/b levels ?

    this is a really nice photo and if you convert it a little better in ps, i think it's a real keeper in b/w. love the trees.

    I wasnt aware that there was an "auto convert" .. to answer your question, I desaturated it and then played around with the contrast a bit.

    Could I possibly PM or post the origanal so you could show me what you mean? or how you would do it? It would be a nice learning experience for me

    And lastly, thanks for the kind words

    Thank you XaiLo

    Just did an auto conversion from RAW and sized it down a bit from the original. just shout if you would prefer the original original...



    Thanks for the help... will be waiting to see your results.

    Simply dialling down saturation usually leads to rather flat looking B&W conversions... one popular method in Photoshop is to use a Channel Mixer adjustment layer so you can dial in the amount of luminance taken from each of the RGB channels. The new version (CS3) has an autoconvert to B&W with sliders to allow you to do pretty much the same thing. I'd show you, but I'm at work right now with no photoshop.

    it just takes some practice and TBH, it all comes down to your taste aswell.
    photo #1 and #2 are using just the contrast/ brightness scales. one has the foreground too dark, (similar to your original), the other looks very "flat" if you try and brighten it up.

    #3 is using levels and curves and r/g/b channels. #4 just adds a bit of warmth for a touch of sepia.

    (many apologies for the multiple photos mr admin)
