Thanks!

You can't really see them in this shot, but the leaves actually make a much more interesting b/w subject. I may do some shots of just those...

the B&W is lucsious.

Whats your method of converting from color to black and white?

I'd like to be able to say that I had some super-secret method... but this is just auto levels and gradient map. Works pretty well most of the time, although when I've got the time I'll use channel mixer. That's not all that often though.

Whats the gradient map thing? I don't believe I've ever tried that.


Lately I've been doing the lab channels method then multiplying the image and adjusting the second layer contrast and fade it in and out.

Image map is found under IMAGE>ADJUSTMENTS>GRADIENT MAP. What it does is create a gradient using your foreground and background colors (usually black and white, unless you've selected something different) and then it overlays it on your image. The channels method probably allows more control, but is a bit more time consuming.

I've found that if you ask ten people about this, you'll get ten different answers... all fine - but some are easier than others!
