    Newbie here, I took this photo in color and tried to convert it to black & white. My impression is that its too grey. I'd love your feedback and/or suggestions.

    Not too grey for my liking.
    Pretty baby portrait and now look at all that neatly brushed HAIR! :D
    Considering the possibility of cropping this vertical would more be "my" option if this were mine - conversion was done well, I say.

    Welcome to ThePhotoForum! :D
    Is it your baby?

    Thanks for the advice. I might try a vertical one as well. Fyi: He's the son of a friend of mine.

    you did good, but remember to pay attention to your background . . . those lines on the left are distracting i think.

    Yeah I think it might look better as a vertical. The only other suggestion would to maybe lighten his eyes. Awesome pic though. What does the color look like? I'd imagine that one looks just as nice. Well done. :thumbup:
