    Continuing developing custom profiles in Lr. Same photo, one with a color profile that I'm working on and one as a B&W conversion I'm working on. Any comments??? Likes/dislikes?

    Hmm, I was leaning toward that decision myself. The exposure, is the same between them, but the highlights are much more pronounced?? Couple of changes to the tone curve channels. Any better?

    In color, the syrup shows up much more so than in any of the B&W renderings. I prefer the color rendering.

    Second b&w is better but I still like the colour. I think part of the “problem” of the b&w is that she looks too modern
    But I think you just given me the answer to one of my problem pics. I have some yestayear period photos in colour that look wrong. Maybe they will be better b&w

    Probably wasn't the best of comparison, as in this case the color version likely works better for the shot. However since both profiles use many of the same settings, it was still a good test subject for comparison.

    Funny that you mention this, because this is the reason behind the direction I've been going on film simulations as Lr Profiles. The color version is a variation on a Kodak Portra simulation while the B&W is a variation on an Illford Delta simulation. I like the fact that unlike Presets, Profiles, don't affect sliders, offer opacity adjustment, and allow more uniform color control across multiple images.

    Totally forgot to adjust the color channels in curves on the first one.
