    ok, i don't care too much about composition or anything here. i want to improve my b&w conversion. what i like about this is the depth of the image, like i can reach out and touch her fur. i don't care for the muddy,flat b&w look and i was trying to get away from that here. any suggestions for improving?

    To me it feels like this photo wasn't all sharp to begin with, there was camera shake, however mildly, that has been compensated by USM. This makes your dog's fur VERY sharp and a bit hard on my eyes.
    And it looks like the whites are just beyond the brink of too white.

    (But that could well be my old eyes........).

    LaFoto, thanks so much for the insight. True, I think my ss was 1/30, darnit. I've got to watch that ss!

    When I did the usm, i did a double take because something looked a little off and i guess this was it.

    if the ss had been higher, do you think the usm would have made it look better, not worse?

    acsonpg, thank you! i don't have ps yet but i think i should be able to try that in the gimp. :)
