    Hello,

    Black and White is a total stranger to me. I don't know exactly what it is, but there is something about it that is so appealing....
    From what I've seen, B&W is far more than just removing the color from a picture.
    In this series I played with contrast and levels and I'd like to get your feedback.

    On this one, I added a 5% Gaussian noise effect in hope to simulate grain

    What do you think?

    Thanks,

    I'm not sure all of these are great candidates for the B+W treatment. It seems appropriate enough in #4 however and you haven't done too bad a job on the conversion.
