      I love monochrome on architecture. This is one of my favs. I think I tend to use a cooler tone of greys in my conversions.

              If you want it to be for the contest, then yes, it needs to have been taken between the dates specified. If you don't want it to be included in the contest but still want to add it to the assignment, it doesn't need to be from the specified time frame.

                  Assignment: Monochrome

                  This is my first submission for the assignments - if I didn't do something right please let me know. Also want to thank Sime for posting the links. I don't think I would have played with the channel mixer settings so aggressively otherwise.

                  blkwhthighkeyeyes

                  I cropped the picture down to the eyes, increased highlights, decreased shadows. Used channel mixer to change to black and white - increased the blue intensity to almost max. (PSE doesn't display in % - I don't think)

                  Exif data:
                  Camera FinePix S700
                  Shutter Speed: 1/290

                          This is sooo pretty - a wonderful keepsake! Those sparkley eyes are beautiful. Wouldn't it be cool in a Andy Warhol / Marilyn Monroe -style picture?
