Old woman in Vilnius

By lilymoonsilver
This is one of the two "final" versions of this B&W conversion. As you'll see from the variants, I cropped it severely, desaturated it, and then played around with the contrast etc. to bring up the shadows. This is the "final - darker" version. I've also included a second "final - lighter" version in which the highlights are blown out too much. At some point I want to work with this some more and find a better compromise between the two "final" versions.

great subject matter...will have a play when I have a few moments...V1 feels as though there are some hidden shadows, whereas V5 is indeed a touch blown Smile

Thanks. Look forward to seeing how you pull out the shadow detail. If I have a chance (maybe, soon...) I'll give it more of a go, too.
