    It seems a little too dark for my taste. But I like the composition.

    The hairclip is too distracting.

    I agree. This is my first b&w and it isn't the best b&w conversion.

    Yeah, it is just a little too dark, and the hairpin is definitely distracting.
    I think lightening it a bit (though probably not this much) and removing the hair pin is a good call.

    I agree that the hairpin is distracting. Anybody have B&W tips?

    I agree... I really like it... Especially if it were a bit lighter.
