    Hi all,

    Today I wanted to shoot in B&W (although I converted the pictures into B&W afterwards) These are some of the results with my dog Noa in it. What do you think of them?

    Nothing like a lab for inspiration. Can I borrow your dog?

    #1 and #3 need to be in frames. Very emotional.

    It may just be my monitor, but 3 is very dark. Maybe brighten the lower midtones a little with curves?

    Yeah, you're right. 3 is a little dark, but in a way I chose to keep it dark. I will see if I can brighten it up a bit.

    Thanx everyone!

    Very regal-looking dog! And I agree that #3 is a little dark.

    yes that is a little better, but I think the dog should be plainly visible. This can be done with the curves tool to brighten the dog but not blow out the sky.

    Yeah, I tried to do this (selecting the dog and then with curves) but it looks really fake...
