I love your B&Ws. The high spots aren't blown, which is something I struggle with a lot. They really look beautiful.

Not a fan of the vintage conversion. There are several places that look way too bright, and the coloring just looks...off. I dunno - I think my CC is dappled with some personal bias. I'm not a fan in general of chocolate B&Ws and other conversions in that vein. They just don't look natural to me.

both conversions turned out well in the first set though I personally prefer the straight b&w. I'm a fan of b&w when it is done right and it looks GREAT here.

again, in the 2nd set, my fave ist he true b&w. You've got a great range of greys in there so that it doesn't look muddy, but not so much contrast that it doesn't look natural.

Great job!

I LOVE the first set, they look amazing. For the second photo set, I like the 1st and 3rd, but not so much the middle one. Those are all pretty soft though--looks like the focus maybe fell on baby's wrist, not sure.

I definately prefer the 1st BW of the first set. I might lighten up on the vingette, though. It's kind of heavy for my tastes. I'm just not a huge fan of overly brown conversions. Plus with the lighter vingette, just not digging it. With the second set, I like the BW verison. I think it's because of the diaper. It blends a little better and your focus stays on the baby's adorable face instead of going to that bright white diaper. Love the wrinkles on baby's forehead, BTW Smile
