    This is my 7 year old niece. I took a few shots of her and asked her to pick the one she prefered and she chose this one.
    This was my first serious venture into black and white conversion and one of the very few portrait shots that I have taken. I definately haven't got to grips with the best way of converting to b&w but I'm fairly happy with how this has turned out. I prefer it to the colour shot.
    Converted to b&w using the channel mixer in paint shop pro X, border and drop shadow added before resizing and applying unsharp mask.

    Exif data:
    Camera - Canon 350D
    Shutter speed - 1/200 sec
    Apeture - F/5.6
    ISO - 100
    Focal length - 50mm

    Nice shot Bowen. Love how you've captured her eyes so brightly.
