Some natural light candids, converted to Black and White using a BW plug-in from The Image Factory that emulates various film stock profiles. In this case, Kodak Tri-X.

They are beautiful Nick
Well done.
Simulating TRIX film amazing.... you would get a film grain effect (400ASA).
TRIX was loved by lecia guys (M3) camera it let them shoot
always in nat'l light.
You have recreated this ....

ALL shots are grear #1 is my fav. the eyes the composition is excellent.

FZ1v2 nice detail and tonality...

Leica Fotographie magazine was the ref. magazine for tops in B&W you may find some in old bookshops or bazzars well worth a read.

Thank you all VERY much. I appreciate your encouraging comments. Boyzo, truth be told, I consider my little FZ-1 "really" a poor man's M5 Rangefinder (with a killer zoom lens!) :G ...when it's combined with The Image Factory's black and white plug-in. I will absolutely give Fotographie a look if I can find an issue. Thanks for the tip!

Excellent shot, Nick
I appreciate that especially coming from you, Fred. First because you're reserved in your comments, and secondly you're tops in terms of knowledge... Thanks!

How did you find that plug-in?
Here's a link. There's a demo I think. It's a bit pricey but it does a super nice job.
http://www.theimagingfactory.com/

Here's a very good FREE plug-in that does very good black and white. Pro-level and free, a great plug-in. Highly recommended. http://www.optikvervelabs.com/default.asp

Thanks again for giving a look and posting feedback - noone, fmoore, boyzo, and greenbaron. I appreciate it!

Thanks will! Our comments crossed in transit. Always wonderful to get feedback from on of this forums many "aces".

Thought I might try something a little different with these... actual people as opposed to nature or still lifes or abstracts.

Really Excellent Nick,

I have always loved the emotion (or lack of) that can be captured in the human face coupled with the dramatic power of Black and White. Some of the most beautiful and disturbing pictures I have ever seen have involved both. Nice to see someone exploring it again.
