Good pics Carlos loving the work.

You know you were on about making the black and white grungy , i had a go at one for you to get some ideas from (hope you dont mind)

Before and After


You need to trick the eye into finding the subject , making edges darker and out of focus draws the eye in and onto the photo suject.
dont go too mad though coz it ends up looking like a spot light.

That's cool mate, whenever I try and push the B&W conversion that hard on the chanels, or levels or curves I blow out the whites to much

Re: Pics from Barbon 2011 IMAGE HEAVY

Keep it simple bud , i never use curves , i do however select some bits on deselect others when im adjusting levels. If you try and adjust the levels for the whole pic it can blow darks and lights out.
Try the black and white presets e'g blue filter , infrared etc.

Another good one is to...

Copy the layer
select blending mode OVERLAY. ( it should look really harsh )
then FILTERS......OTHER.....HIGH PASS.
Mess with the slider, a little bit makes it sharpen up, alot brings all sorts of effects.
Merge the layer down.
you may need to adjust the contrast after this as it makes it a touch greyer.

Remember to feather it all in as well.

Re: Pics from Barbon 2011 IMAGE HEAVY

should keep me entertained trying stuff :D
I use high paths but don't do selective adjustment levels which would be why I was pushing parts to hard, i'll take more time on the levels next time, cheers mate
