Okay so the before is the b&w with no editing after, just some editing while it was in color, and the after photo I bumped up the exposure and shadows a bit. Which one is better? I am learning how to edit the b&w photos better and need input!

ETA: Adding a couple others. Again they are the same edit process.

What software are you using, and what black and white conversion method?

I use picnik right now, getting Lightroom soon. I bumped up the exposure and shadows by 20 each for each photo.

1. For the child, I like the after because it softens the face. 2. The dog, I like the before because the contrast looks great. 3. The last picture looks a bit too light, skin is a bit ghostly but the eyes look great. Nice pics.

I like the after for #1 - it does soften the face

Before on #2.

#3 is a bit washed out for my taste.

And finally - LR3 is on sale right now - $150, to tax no shipping at B&H.

I agree with you Titus on the editing corrections.
I found a better deal on the LR3 at Amazon just $99.- plus Free shipping
