    If not, what would you do different?

    This is what I did.

    In nikon capture

    0) Set black and white points in curves dialog
    1) Photo effects, select B/W
    2) Enhance dark tones
    3) Pushed red channel to the right
    4) Pushed yellow / blue all the way to 0
    5) Nudged Magenta / Green channel down to taste

    Opened the image in PS

    6) Partial sharpening of eyes.
  2. It works for me, nice image of a cute young girl.

    What would Ansel think .....

    Beautiful child. I prefer color most of the time. This looks good.

    Thanks Gordon, Gale, need to watch for the light, need more contrast :) .
  5. The conversion looks fine, Anand. I usually use the channel mixer method. It allows me a lot of control in fine tuning the result.

    I like this pensive pose a lot... but to my eye, that intruding finger detracts...
  6. Fantastic shot. :D  :D  :D  :D  :D
