    Hey,

    I took this pic of a doorway a while ago - and decided to make it B&W - what do you think? It seems to create more of a mood?

    here's the orig:

    How did you convert it to B&W?

    The wall is too bright. I would up the contrast in photoshop with the curves tool.

    I don't know if PSP has a channel mixer but that would yield much better results than simply desaturating.
