Not sure which I like more... I love cross processing slide, but I am loving B&W more and more these days...

Olympus EP-2, Canon FD 35mm F/2

ISO 400, F/4.5 @ 1/500

Cross Process out of Camera, B&W a variant on my typical b&w conversion in CS...

Beautiful - I prefer the first in colour, the second in B&W.

Thanks for sharing, this is the first time I've seen this Art filter used for a portrait - and it works well.

Cheers

Yes, my first response is at how cute your daughter is, too! If I had to choose, I'd choose as Brian did. For some reason I love the first one of her in the color - and agree with SimplyEd about the old fashioned quality... The colors remind me of the way many of the old photos from my parents era look...we're talking about back in the late 40s, early 50s...time and light have taken their toll.

I like the first one in B&W. Without the color, it draws to her face and then the eyes very easy. The color version while nice draws to hard to the shoes and the green....

In the B&W..there is no competition for the eyes, they just F E E L her and get lost in her expression............

there's a wonderful tension with her foot and the frame edge...it pushes the eyes to her legs and then up to her hands making that great oval with her arms....that supports her head that of course brings you back to her face and eyes.....
It reminds me of Lewis Hine almost to much......but that's a wonderful complement to be able to evoke what he did in an image...


The second one doesn't work....

Thank you all... I have to agree... Although I really like the color I have just printed an 11x17 of the B&W for the office.... She was actually waiting for me to switch from film to digital, guess she didn't notice I already had the camera swapped ;)

Street, do you find the shoe a little distracting?? I was going to add a vignette, but that didn't work for me much..

No not at all...
look at the very tip of the shoe..see the white part...that's called the "Irritant"

It's the part of the image that generates movement....

What a cute little girl with those lovely unguarded expressions that pass over the face of a small child! In the first she looks a little unsure about what she is viewing but in the second she has decided that its okay I think. I like both renditions. I 'm having a dilemma over black and white and the de-saturated look for my daughter's pictures. She is almost nineteen now and much more guarded!

Thanks all... I am looking at an 8x10 of it right now on the office (cube) wall...

Christilou, I really like the black and white.. Maybe adding a little bit of contrast...
