    I like it; a nice cream/warm tone mono job and nicely faded where appropriate

        I like the tones very much too. It makes a restful picture, very pleasant and easy on the eyes. Beautiful post processing.

          I like it, it reminds me of a picture you might find in an antique book.

            Works well for me. The plain background helps out here.

                Iain, when I saw the thread title I was expecting a more straightforward B&W conversion with most of the detail of the bird literally blacked out. Not so! This is beautifully processed with gorgeous creamy tones, plenty of detail where it matters and excellently presented with a light vignette to finish it off. Did you use Silver Efex or a similar program? I would never of thought of giving the subject this treatment but it really, really works!

                  Hi John,the simple answer is yes it was done in silver efex pro2 in Lightroom and finished in colour efex in Photoshop.I find I can do most of my work in Lightroom these days.
                  Cheers Iain

                      It work really well Ian and gives it a nostalgic feel, I like it a lot.
                      For me I feel the vignette encroaches on the tail a little to much, but that's me being picky.
                      Regards Paul.
                      One day I hope to be the person my dogs think I am.
