I am having a heck of a time PP'ing any of the images of my youngest. I shot them with my 70-210 (he's at THAT age where he doesn't want me in his face) and it doesn't have a lens hood. It was about 8.15pm and had just dropped really cold but the light was yummy.
Now, my boy is pretty pale IRL but he isn't grey although his jacket is. I would LOVE the see some plays on this, so have included a SOOC at 1024px. If you do play, could you please list the steps. I have cs5.
My edit - Not sure about the colours. He looks kind of magenta to me, but I am useless with colour casts. Goes a long way to explaining why I love B&W!
and because I lurve B&W!
Oh Kerry, I just love the B&W!! Not sure about the magenta either, it's there, but hmm. Have you tried a selective color layer? IDK if that would work. The B&W is amazing though!!

I LOVE that b&w! Wow. That's a great conversion! I need to learn how to do a good b&w without an actions!

this is the best that i could come up with with a jpeg file i'm sure it is easier with a raw file. in ACR all I did was increase the exposure just a tad and increased blacks and contrast quite a bit. And I messed around with a few other things like curves in ACR. Increased the darks pretty much. Then I did a bit of editing in PS. If you'd like the psd file i can email it to ya if you want to know how I got these results. I was just messing around pretty much.
Thanks! It never occured to me to do most of my edit in ACR. I might give that a try with the others from this set. Thanks for the steps.
LOL at the rest of you, I LOVE B&W but my dh is saying this image needs to be in colour!
I did learn something from this shoot though, I NEED a reflector or at least need to remember to take my foamboard with me (mind you, it was windy as heck, it would have blown away)
I NEVER remember to bring anything reflective ... I need to do that.
I'm also loving the B&W ... and I've been doing most of my edits in ACR too, sure helps!
gotta love yummy light!
