Great shot smac and I love the B&W version nooner.

Now for a question.

Is it better to set the camera on B&W or convert the colour shot in photoshop/paintshop ?

... if I may. The in-camera B&W is "okay". Photoshop or PSP will - likewise, produce "okay" results. But it's best to use a PS "action", plug-in, or follow specific procedures. There's more to it than just removing colors for best results.

These are two PS plug-ins. The Image Factory is a little pricey but I think it has a demo version. It can emulate different types of B&W film stock, which I like.

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 Nick, I'll check them out.
Gee this is a great forum and a fun way to learn.
Think I'll stick around and start using my real name.

Thanks Nick,

I have been playing with removing colors and changing contrast and brightness levels in Elements but I can't come close to what nooner posted.
His B&W has more of a blue cast to it that just removing colors.

I will see if the plug-in you recommended will work on my Mac.

Muchas Gracias,
Estaban-mac

Smac, I used the virtual photographer plug-in that Nick gave the link to. I used the satin stell preset. It's a great free plugin with the ability create your own presets. Highly recommended:arrow::arrow::arrow::arrow::arro w::arrow::!:
