I want to thank a very talented and helpful gentleman by the name of Carlo Casana for inroducing me to one of Fred Miranda's B&W plugins. The following is my first attempt using it, just playing around to see what effects I could achieve. I'm pretty pleased with my first experiment, using a wedding shot I did back in January.

Looks nice, Stu!

Wouldn't mind seeing a fraction more contrast to really bring out the blacks, but it's almost got a nice infra-red feel at the moment which is quite nice.

Thank you Mizuno - BTW, sorry about the blue jeans crack :o .

Yeah, I kind of stumbled into the "infra red" look by playing with the plug in's sliders and decided that was really the effect that I felt worked. Interestingly enough, my first instinct WAS to go with higher contrast. But I couldn't get anything that I was really that happy with - so I took the opposite approach and came up with this.

Thank you Elena. Now I just have to decide if I want to print it matte or glossy; probably go matte on my inkjet.

Brrrrrr, wedding in january! Lovely feeling to this shot. I do agree that is seems a bit even. Perhaps some shadow/highlight or contrarast, or curves. . something to give more definition.. it is such a lovely image.

Wow, thanks Stu! Nice prompt to go check out Miranda's stuff.

Looks like the original didn't lack either.

Stu, can you post the color version, or email it to me? I'm pretty sure I can do better in 60 seconds.

Hmmmm... personally I am a fan of strong contrast in b&w.. this is a bit to flat for my personal taste

Stu, this image has some great potential... and I don't think you went the right way with it, even if IR is cool. I used the image you had to play with a bit, so the quality is not the best, but I think you get the idea.

I love the sky, you need to bring it out, make it darker! There's a very timeless feel to this image, even if the pavement gives it a way a bit, it coudl have been a shot taken 100 years ago. Now here's my more gloomy interpretation of your image. :)

IMAGE NOT FOUND IMAGE IS A REDIRECT OR MISSING!
Byte size: ZERO | Content warning: NOT AN IMAGE


Pee Ess... I'm not that found of actions, but I do run one action that gives me a fairly good b/w to start with, and then I work the image with doge and burn, layer masks up the the yin yang. I love playing with b/w's!

I love Cyber Pets edit, has a more emotional/dramatic look.. exactly what I look for in a b&w
