    I suspect this could be a good b&w image.
    What can I do with Photoshop?
    Any edits are welcomed.

    Since you want others to play "PS magic" with this one (you particularly aim for b&w conversions???), I moved the thread to the Photoshop Challenges, for that is just what you put up for all of us, a PS challenge, right? ;) I might take you up on that challenge, maybe, though I'm not sure I can bring back what detail there actually is on the planks, but got lost here ... let's see...

    Well, I don't know PS but I have a couple others at my disposal

    This one is just greyscale

    This one is greyscaled, with a slight orange tint,

    I'll redo this after work with a better program and see if I can get something I can translate into Photoshop lingo

    Well, I first of all PSed the colour version a little to bring out more in that one:

    And then I had a bit of fun with the Channel Mixer at 100 percent opacity, put to monochrome and then playing with the sliders :D

    Red +30, Green +70 and Blue - 20 was this:

    Red - 30, Green + 30 and Blue + 90 was this:

    And Red 0, Green +50 and Blue +50 was this:

    I also began to play with the Channel Mixer, Opacity set to only 80%, then going monochrome, which would be another fun path to go into, but I left things at this for the time being.

    Thank you Battou and thank you LaFoto!

    That is exactly what I needed. I would like to learn how to make tender and dreamy b&w images. I like the first LaFoto made (Red +30, Green +70 and Blue - 20).

    Thank you again.

    Not a problem, When I got in to work I saw La Foto had alredy done what I was going to do so...Sorry I did not go more into detail like I said I would try. I don't have PhotoShop. Only Illustrator and MS PhotoDraw, and I only have PhotoDraw here at work and it is considerably lacking in many reguards.

    Used Ps CS3, with B/W Styler 1.0 plugin. Using extra short development, grade 3 paper, & daguerreotype color.

    I'm having trouble editing my last post, it won't accept when I hit save. So here's the edit.

    I just had another idea, if you like this one, I'll do it and put it up. But run the walkway the opposite direction...picture at the bottom instead of the top.

    LaFoto's 2nd B&W example is the keeper.
