    So how did I do on these conversions?

    They look pretty good to me! I find high key conversions really difficult. I still haven't figured out how to do a good one yet. Maybe I just haven't had the right lighting for it?

    I like them as well. #1 looks like it has some blown areas across the top and down a bit on the right. But the 2nd one looks pretty good, with nice definition. The eyes look a little dark, but I don't find that a distraction.

    TFS!

    Thanks! I just kept playing around with them. I think exposure is key, more so than lighting. We only have one light in our bathroom, and it really isn't great for pictures. That's why I thought to try the conversions. Here is the original of the 2nd. I had to crop so much that I know this picture won't be great for much besides just being on the computer, but it was a good picture of Aiden.

    I think they look pretty good. I'd like to see a little more catchlight in your son's right eye in the first one (which you could do by dodging). Bathtub shots are always difficult IMO. The room lighting is generally awful, and shooting against a white tub doesn't help!

    One thing you might try for the fun of it (which I've never done but would be interested in trying) is to play with the white balance settings on your camera, just to see how your SOOC shots look. Then you can edit and convert.

    I have never used tried dodging. It's on my list of things. I might just try later today if I get the chance. (And the first one is my DD, Alaina )

    Oops. Sorry about that, Danielle (and Alaina).

    I think from the lighting with which you started with that you did a great job!

    I think those are great conversions, especially with what your original lighting was.

    I think the conversions are good. Bright and airy, which I love with bathtub photos. There is no muddiness. With the top photo, on the top left hand side there is a shadow that I would probably clone out
