Great sohrab 2005-07-13 17:12

this is a beautiful photograph, but unfortunately your processing here is not at all good.. it seems that you've straigtaway converted the photgraph from colour to greyscale and that's about it..
burning and dodging is very important in black and white photography..
this photograph is very strong in content. the body language and expression of the woman form its backbone and so i think you should dodge the lady..
i'll give a quick workshop to try and create an 'atmosphere'
you should look up the works of bangladeshi photographers like shahidul alam
bangladesh is like a huge reservoir of photographic talent.
take care :)

on photoshop, on the left there is a vertical tol bar. you'l either see a hand or a black circle.. the hand is for burning and the circle for dodging. by righclicking on either you can choose the alternative.

then on top you can choose either midtone, shadows or highlights.. i think only midtone is worth using.. highlight option is really crappy beause it takes away all the grains as well..
you can also choose the value..

however.. dodging and burning done by hand is still the best in my opinion :)
