I love the black and white format. Very nice, I haven't had much luck with black and white myself with the digital cameras , mine always seem to get muddied up in the gray zone. very good work !

The lighting seems to be better in the second one, but I prefer the frame of the first one.

Here is the second one reframed

Hey, nice job. I agree with you. It looks great reframed that way!
Thanks!

May I ask which program do you use for B&W conversion. I use Nik Silver Effex.
Nice composition.

The best way, not to have any bad pixel mixture, I mean no bad grain or noise increase is just to use The tutorial posted by Trekker here… http://www.aube-nature.com/technique_photoshop_passage_noir_et_blanc.php
even if its in French, this is quite clear as a method, much effective and nice than any other solution… I really think that Nik Silver Effex tried to made a film grain with over values without considering that we may not need an ilford 50 ASA or any kind of film type to make good black and white effect…

See this thread on panophoto.org (in french to see what can be used and made with other methods, it's interesting…

If there is a need of translation, we will help you :)

I just use PS CS3. A simple gradient mask with some tweaking usually does the job!
