Thanks for looking. Anyone suggest I turn this in for low key B&W? Or try again... Please explain one way or the other.

The tips from the lesson on page 4 (Digital Black and White):"When you want to convert your color photo to black and white...etc..etc..." really helps me did the assignment.. I did as what the lesson says, and the results do amaze me, I'm now falling in love with B&W photography!!
Hope that helps.

I would try again...the photo looks soft and dark to me. Only the girl is in focus and their faces are dark. On a creative note, and just my opinion, but standard portraits like this look much better in color, a B+W portrait needs to show more personality or atmospere (early morning cup of coffee, yoga, anything that captures the essence of that person). Have fun with it!
I think you had mentioned in another post you are using paint shop pro and not doing much in the way of PP. I think this is one assigment where a better program like lightroom or aperture will do wonders for your B+W conversion. You can download either of them on a trial basis for free just to check it out. Shoot RAW and convert with their non-destructive format so you can play around and try different styles and settings.

I used a light with very low kelvin numbers, that is what I was looking for, the "shadows" (hence... low key) But I guess I am not getting it. I will keep trying.
Yes all I have to edit with is paint shop pro x2 and 3.
