Shot this at the local farmer's mkt this past weekend. This lady was selling vegetables and was waiting for customers.
Shot with a yellow filter to increase contrast. Taken fairly early, so the light was from the side. I used a new (to me)technique to convert to B&W based upon the tutorial by ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' fotomann_forever which employs the use of two Hue/Sat adjustment layers.

Beautiful b&w. I don't know if that's primarily due to the conversion technique (thanks for sharing the link, by the way) or to the yellow filter, but it looks amazing. I like your composition, too.

She does not look happy AT ALL. Kinda like, "Buy my stuff, or else." Good bw processing.

I like her pose, she looks sort of aggrevated waiting there. I think the b&w works nice for the shot too.

She looks more sad to me than mad, but I wouldn't know really. I do know your image is wonderful and sharp. I love the contrast and how you made the cars look as if they are glowing with soft light. Nice job!!

Sidelighting works great on what appears to a not-so-happy model. Nice candid.

The expression on her face is priceless. I feel that way most days! :) Nice shot and pp. I'll have to try that conversion process myself. :)

The contrast filter worked very well and the B/W conversion is excellent.

Nice shot.

Cool! I'm always on the lookout for different B&W conversion techinques. I'll have to give that a try. This looks great! She sure looks peeved though. Doesn't she know what a great job she has being able to be outside in the fresh air all day instead of some fluorescent light cubicle maze? I can just feel the rays of warm sunlight. :)

I like how the light is kind of abrupt on her face. Fits her rather disgruntled expression.

This lady looks a bit unhappy with her sales or something. The black and white treatment adds to the disappointed look on the subjects face. The light from the side really draws your eye inward right to the lady.

I think you should buy something from her, she looks mad.

That's my favorite way to convert to black and white as well, and I also learned it from fotomann forever's tutorial.

She's a beautiful girl. She doesn't look too happy tho does she. I guess there weren't enough customers. We have a farmers market too and when it's slow and dead, the vendors have that "This wasn't really worth all this" look in their eyes like she has :)
