Looks as if you have made a fine conversion to B and W, Ann: and an interesting face it is too, just demanding a portrait shot.

What an excellent portrait! I love the position in the frame and the crop too, Ann.

The conversion looks fantastic with such a good range from dark to light with rich contrasts too.

Bravo Smile

A very appealing portrait and very appealing b&w too. The tones are well differentiated and the textures and lines come over especially well.

It's a well detailed mono Ann - great character/ face. I do think a portrait format would have been the better option though - with the beret and his chin both near the edges of the frame it looks a bit tight - more of the shoulders would have added balance to the width of that beret.Smile

A great face for a close up portrait - certainly looks good in mono - you see his personality more in this one.
The beret and moustache are great for texture.

This male mono portrait - bangs on your front door seeking attention. Those eyes are super.

The landscape crop works a real treat for me.
