D3vil. I assume since you posted this pic you also took it. Therefore it follows that you know something about it. With a shot like this some dialogue is nice to let us know what we are looking at since many of us didnt get the chance to be there with you. Just posting an unusual pic like this with expectations of C&C just doesnt cut it with me.

the tones are wrong. they are all dark tones without any balance, and thus there is next to no contrast here.

what exactly did you do to convert to black and white? it almost looks like you chose the wrong preset filter.

let us know what you did, so we can help figure out what went wrong.

hello

the photo was converted to b&w in cs2 (desaturate) and then i played with the levels/curves.
i was trying to achieve some dark tones to emphasize her skin and textures

i guess i went the wrong way
