ThoughtI would share this one with you all. I took this shot last year at a Civil War re-enactment near my home. The kids were probably in their early teens sitting on top of a hill watching and waiting for the next show to start. When I uploaded it in color, it didn't really strike me, so I changed it to black and white and fell in love with it. Out of the thousands of pics I have taken, this is one of my top ten. Enjoy!

Anyone else play around with black and white?

Have you tried this photo in a light sepia tone? it might make it look more of that period. And have a look at this post....

Here is a photo taken in color then changed to B&W, then run through some Opanda filters to get the sepia tone effect. Hope they meet with your approval.

Nice work on the photo! Downloaded the Opanda the other day, but have not had the chance to play around with it. Still up to my elbows in Strawberries! lol :?

I agree, sometimes b+w is more colorful ( wait that sounds like something yogi berra would say) and I too have changed a few portraits to b+w and liked them more

Great shot WVKAL1 I often play with B&W and IMO Mystical tint tone and color are excellent for this kind of post shooting enhancement It's an awesome program heres the link for the above mentioned software and check out what else they have to offer small learning curve but the possibilities are endless

I like the pic WV. B&W is something i need to start experimenting with. It can really look cool with the right subject matter.
