#4 captures a great expression, even though she is partially covered up. Well done.

Hiya, Ed! Great photos! They are all great, but #3 is fantastic.

Ed, on Pentax DSLR, if one switches to "black and white", then would the use of a green filter for protraits / skin tone still work... and red for high contrast... etc?

Many greetings from here in Finland, where we just got some snow... and it is a country with one of the most difficult languages in the world... I still can't say "meet" properly... the word for "meet" and "kill" sound so similiar... I seem to scare people away.

All the best.

Ned

well, irregardless of camera manufacturer, it is usually best to avoid shooting in the black and white mode of your camera.

shooting full color and then making your conversion in post-processing gives you much more latitude. you can then experiment with all of the filter effects and choose the one that suits you best. something you cannot do if you shoot in black and white mode on your camera.

also, if none of the presets give you the results you desire. making the conversion in post-process allows you to take full control of the image and make your own "filter effects" by adjusting the color channels.
