At The Beach
4 Attachment(s)
This set is of my daughter playing at the beach for the afternoon. All were shot in colour and I've been trying to play around with colour conversion in PS8. C&C always welcome as I'm a total newbie when it comes to PS8 but have been inspired to try by many photos posted.

I really like number one and four. Number one shows her enjoying herself and number four shows the same and great lighting.

Same here for 1 and 4. Gorgeous bokeh in 4 but I would try to lower the brightness on her skin a tad. I might play with bringing the brightness down in 2 as well and maybe try to add some grain. It's brighter than I like to see in a b&w. The way that the sunlight is hitting her eye in #3 makes me wonder what the color version might look like. Not sure what color eyes she has but maybe play with popping that color in the color version of the photo.

Thank you both for commenting!

I'll repost the third photo in colour so you can see the difference, shortly. I absolutely agree that her skin is too light. I haven't learned how to isolate things yet to alter the colour intensity....that's my next goal. :)
