Black and White Photos Again

As most of you already know, I am a major fan of black and white photos. I have a habit of checking just about every picture I really like, to see how it would look as a black and white. Sometimes the results are stunning, and other times the results are just okay. This time I was pretty pleased with the black and white conversions.

I didn’t use a lot of fancy image editing for these pictures, just some basic adjustments using the unsharp mask and the use of the Virtual Photographer plugin (with some custom settings) to convert them to black and white. This is one of my favorite plugins!
