It doesn't matter...

...whether Krystal is portrayed in B&W or colour. She still is gorgeous. My first foray into B&W for Krystal. Hope you like them.

#1 Same pose as Noordin's but from a different angle


#2 Time for a smoke


#3 Confused

Doc, stunners as always and the b/w gives added depth. :thumbsup:

Wish there was a wee bit more light on her left (right of pic) for #1, just to see her features slightly ... errrr... like #2

Nice pics and good B&W conversion Doc.

The second pic the right eye standing out from the shadow looks a little odd, seen as though the left eye is so dark but it's the right side of the face that's in shadow.

Those pictures are better than the ones in the B&W photography book I am presently reading.

Damn good. (Where the heck is the thumb's up smiley ?)

Will look into that and try it out soon. Thanks Alan for you input.

I was careless on that part. I wanted to highlight the smoke coming from the ciggy but highlighted that eye as well. Thanks Gareth.

Thanks Kingsley! I pp-ed these in colour as per usual. Once I was satisfied with the lighting I used Gradient map to convert it into B&W. I also adjusted somewhat using Selective Colours (Black, White and Grey). Then resized and USM. Seems to work eh?

I love the 2nd picture the most. The intensity in the eyes does it for me.

Thanks Noordin! Manny asked me to try B&W for that one and that got me started.

I feel the slight lowering of contrast should help...
