I've been going back through my archive of dog pictures (nearly 30,000!), looking for potential candidates for black and white conversion for my other web site, Black And White Dog Pics. I found a couple of pictures, one of Bronte, one of Ari, that I took about a year ago.
I converted the pictures to black and white, played around with some special effects, and this is what I ended up with. I quite like the results so I decided to show both pictures here.
