    How is this? I did it via desaturating the original in GIMP. There are other methods, but this one I think looked the best. C&C, please (I know the crop is a bit tight):

    I think the conversion is great. I would have loved to see more of the pug. Cute dog BTW.

    Conversion seems fine; perhaps a slight contrast boost?

    Yeah, I wish I had zoomed out further. I was just messing around in the living room, and got some surprisingly good pictures color wise (I haven't done much indoor shooting with my camera, the flash is great!) Here's the pic with a bit more contrast and I lowered the exposure just a tiny bit.

    Edit: I actually feel the second is definitely better, so I removed the original from Flickr. Still saved to the harddrive, of course, along with the original.
