    Default Project 52: Week 3 - Black and White

    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.

    Ok, here is one I did using only the apps on my phone, I used mostly snapseed:

    The shot was hot on his face to start with sadly.

    A bit OTT but I really wanted to emphasise his eyes

    Here's one from me.....this gorgeous HUGE church was in a tiny town we passed through going to dinner Saturday night. (note: do you think the sky should be brighter? I toned it down to 240.... but it seems too gray, I liked it brighter)


    and the original/color:

    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.

    I'll probably be adding in multiples into this week's theme



    ETA: I forgot to put in my color version. Here it is, but no noiseware.

    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:
    More Micah

    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:
