    imagesbyjudd ~ thats's a lovely portrait shot, and very natural looking too.
    I haven't got the flash yet - but I like the use of a diffuser, it really takes the hardness out of the flash.
    TheWengler (Lukas) lovely photos - these look great in B&W - was this with the 1.4 lens??

    Thanks Geoff. Yes it was with the 50mm f/1.4. Both shots were taken at f/2.

    Very nice, Lukas. I like the bokeh and sharpness of that lens, and those B&W conversions are really good.

    Geoff, Thanks for the comment. I'm still tinkering with the background. Heavy overcast very light rain. But enough light to define the subject back, and I in addition to the diffuser on the flash I think I had it set to half power. I'm rarely happy with full auto, so I tend to tinker. And then tinker some more in PS.

    Very nice B&W shots Wrengler. I love b&w, but I have a hard time deciding which one to convert. I always like other peoples choice better.

    Great shots, Lukas. Would you share what you've learned about B&W conversions?
    BTW did you process the eyes differently in #1? They almost seem to be in color, they pop somehow. Excellent work.

    Adam, IbJ, Tori - Thanks a lot for your comments. Usually I decide to convert an image to B&W if the colors don't pop much. It can also help save some images with blown highlights. It doesn't work so well on low contrast images. Everything just looks like one shade of gray when converted to B&W. Sometimes I'll convert the WB to fluorescent or tungsten. Then I raise the contrast and the shadows/blacks a decent amount more than normal and lower saturation all the way. After I exit the RAW editor I usually put a sepia filter over the image at 35-40%, just enough for a light tint (that might be the color you're seeing Tori). I didn't do anything special to the eyes color-wise, I did use some selective USM on them though. Nothing too special.

    Thanks for the tips, I never thought of a lot of those things (like WB and light sepia.)
