    here's the original and reg. b&w (btw, her skin tone was brownish and then red in spots where the cold water affected her skin. I didn't touch it during PP, but let me know if you see a cast or anything)

    I think the grain is a good idea for this photo, but maybe not so harsh? And i think I would like it better in color or a sepia tone...but thats me.

    Hmmm... personally mono doesn't work for me in this case regardless whether sepia, B&W or what. The lack of contrast between the subject, her bathing suit and the water makes for a rather bland image. How about split the difference? Do a selective colouration, B&W background, and coloured subject with a little saturation boost?

    Edited to add: Didn't see the last ones right away. Like these very much.

    I like the grain. I think it's perfect for this kind of shot. I love the rest of them too, Kelly. Only praise from me for this shoot!

    I think these are great!!!
    on the grainy one I think a little bit of a sepia would make it look more old fashioned along with the grain.

    I personally don't like the grain, but that's just a 'me' thing.

    You always have fabulous stuff!!!

    i like the grain, however as someone else has mentioned maybe not so intense. softer grain would be nnicer i think

    Thanks!! I'll try it in sepia to see how that looks. I liked how it looks like a painting :)

    i love number 1 of the recently added pics. it looks great in black and white. but it looks gorgeous in colour! i'm serious. love the black and white contrast though. might want to make the blacks blacker.
