Could I get a little CC pleeeeeaaase? :)

This is a picture I took a couple days ago, I like it (mommy goggles) even though he's not looking at me. I was just wondering about colour, exposure, etc?

Also, I love the look of black and white pictures, but I can never get a good conversion. I *think* this one looks okay.....any advice?

looks good to me. I would add in a little more blacks and maybe a tad more contrast on the b&w.

I like these types of "profile" pics...very cute! Good color. I like a b & w to have more contrast, and I have a go-to action that usually gives me good results (I am terrible at trying to convert them on my own), so I had a play with yours...hope you don't mind! Let me know if you'd like me to take it down. What do you think?

Cute! I think the color looks good. The b&w looks a little flat to me, though.

I like that play, looks really good Smile

I think the original photo is GORGEOUS! Love profile pics and then with his blue eyes- adorable!!! Your B&W is a bit flat.

Great picture! Really not much to add in the way of CC, everyone covered it.

I don't think I can add anything new, but I did want to say that I love your composition and that sweet face is just TOO CUTE!

Keep posting (I can't get enough)!

Best,

It is a really cute pic, although it looks as if his shirt is more focused than his eye; and the conversion is too flat, needs more darks/contrast and brighten his face...

I agree with everyone else. Gorgeous blue eyes and the conversion needs more contrast.

catching up on older posts ... I did see this when you first posted, but didn't have time to reply. I really love the original. just so sweet! lighting is great, and the colors look good. the conversion does need more contrast, but you have a good start to play with. I prefer him in color though.
