    Subject is my wife, it was taken on an overcast day in Manhattan. Light was not the best. The photo was cropped from original size, and converted to B&W.

    Any comments on how to improve this shot are very much appreciated.:)

    I like the softness of this picture. The glance seems very deep.

    Maybe a bit more contrast and deeper black could imrpove this result.

    Any ideas how to make the blacks deeper in photoshop? for the most part it seems like I darken the over all image too much.

    use the curves tool. make a very long leaning S.

    start with something like that. every image will be different but that is a simple way.

    someone else may have something better.

    Go into channel mixer and switch from red, blue and green channels and pick out the strongest. Then use the dropdown choose that channel and then click monochrome.

    Yes, beautiful eyes. So much so, that I wonder if B&W is the right answer?
