Converted this to black & white in Lightroom 3 (my gift to myself). Used a Canon S3 so I had to blur the background a little. The frame was created in Essentials 3.

    The black and white conversion really works with this shot. Do you like Essentials 3?

      I got Essentials 3 by renewing my PET subscription early. I got it for enlarging photos which I have not used much. However I saw a Laurie Excell webinar (which is now posted on onOne’s website) on Frames. I never realized before what you can do with the frames function (maybe if I looked at some tutorials??) I really like the Frames function.

    Nice b/w image, very clear and Rockefeller Center is a great place.

    How does Lightroom handle this? I use Color Channels in Photoshop to make b/w conversions.

      In Lightroom 3 can do B&W two ways – 1) In the development module there is a panel which includes b&w sliders and 2) there are a bunch (a technical term) of presets.

    Great range of tones in this, I especially love the sparkler looking things. Have fun with Lightroom, what a nice gift to yourself.

    I love B+W and this is no exception…blurred background is essential her. Nice job.
