Our week 3 theme has been chosen and it is "Black and White"!
Let see those pictures! There is a quick Black and White Tutorial here.
ETA: To make it fun - Post your color picture then your conversion.

I would like to see it brighter, Amy. I would think that for a back and white, as long as you have your outlines, and they're not blending in, it would be ok to blow the whites. I could be way wrong though!
I love it Kerry. I never thought a hint of green works on a conversion, but this sure does!
Amy - I like it, I would love to see a little bit more contrast to it. I am assuming this is not sharpened?
I did several of these shots - trying from moody to flat. I will post some more tonight. This is my nephew. He has lighter brown eyes than my boys.
One more for tonight and off to bed. This one is a bit more moodier...
Black and White
ETA: I don't always get cooperation.... I am getting a lot of these portraits lately...

Here's mine: and colour to compare (untouched): He wouldn't cooperate, so compositionally his eyes are rather centered and I wasn't sure where to crop, but I like it anyway. It's a very "Micah" look.
And just to throw in a couple more, this one because it's so cute, after he won a game of Mouse Trap:
and this one because I really love the light here -- great for conversion, but taken last week so not technically 'valid' for the 52-week challenge:
