The second one for me too. I love the confident impulsive relaxed feel in her look. I also really like your B&W conversion - I don't know quite how to describe it... maybe, rich low contrast... whatever, I like it. Do you mind sharing your method?
Thanks. I don't have a specific formula on my conversions. I tend to experiment with different tools and settings. This series was done with Nik Silver. I start in PS (CS-6) and do some initial image clean up, then I open it in Nik, start with a preset that gives me a feel I am looking for and just tune it with the different sliders until I hit the mix I like. Then when it is back in PS I do some adjustment in the curves to get the contrast I want and usually finish off with a high-pass filter. It is a purely liquid workflow, meaning I rarely do it the exact same way twice.
