Miles is incredible when it comes to turning a digital photograph into black and white. His subjects always look great. He`s a briliant photographer, but what makes me crazy is knowing how good a portrait can look on screen... This is my latest attempt. I guess Miles has spent a few hours in front of his computer - but I have too, and I`m not happy. The more I adjust and tweak, the more freaky it gets, and in the end, everything I did has to be reset, and this is the result...
I`m not unhappy with it - I wouldn`t have posted it if I was, but I know it could have been better... AAAArrrrgggg!!!!!
(...I`m talking about computer-skills, here. Don`t want to offend the model...)
And I`m not licking Miles`back either. I`m just frustraded.
Nikon D-70s

i think it looks pretty darn good actually! the tones look fine on my screen : )

cool shot too ;-)
Yeah, Miles is good, but you also chose quite a difficult photo to start with. There is a huge range between the bright background and the shadows on the head, Plus the highlights on the shirts and teeth. Not easy, and pretty good result anyway.
Perhaps I should try with photographs that is less contrasty, like a portrait taken in a shaded area. This was lit by a flash... Didn`t think about that - Thanks for the support and the advice to both of you!
(and I`ve cooled down now ;)
