Looking for advice on which version is preferred, Color or B&W. Comments and CC are appreciated and desired as to why, please!

Cheers,

Mike

I like the b&w but it really needs a boost... Some contrast and maybe a little eye pop.. Very cute baby.. :)

I hope you don't mind but I played around with this picture just a tad.. She is such a cutie.. Oh where did you get your frame from or did you make it? I LOVE it....

This was converted using Cheetapita's b/w tutorial..

WOW!

Thanks Heather! You may have nulled my poll! They look awesome. I have the action by CheetaPita...didn't use it because I am a stubborn you-know-what! :lol:

Still trying to get the hang of the photoshop thing...what did you do for the eyes on the color version?

Regarding the frame, click on the following link and scroll down to Marcia's Frame Actions. It was the Gallery Frame. Would love to take credit for it but it is from another.

You'll see there is so much stuff on that site, it is ridiculous! Some great, some not so much...but I'd bet you find a thing or two more on that site that works for you!

Anna is our 9 month old, and you are right, she's a cutie (not that I'm biased)...:oops:

My wife works Saturdays, so I watch her every Sat. That means, I usually have 100 frames of Anna / weekend! Plenty of time to practice for sure!

Thanks for your guidance. You have been a most outstanding help!

Cheers,

Mike

First of all this baby is adorable. For me the B&W is the winner. I think that B&W works better for darker color eyes. Just my .02

Thanks...I think they look better too. I have some work to do with my PS technique. I thin that I am too conservative with the contrast at times. Still learning!

Yes, she is adorable alright. She's just started saying DA-DA (first word! :D), only she says it like this: "da-Da-DA-Da-da" (sort of a crecendo / decrecendo way)...it's hilarious.

My wife likes the B&W better FWIW, and I tend to agree with you on the eyes. I am still undecided though, as both look good to me.

Thank you for your comments!

Cheers,

Mike
