I originally processed this one a few days after it was shot but I've sat on it until now as I really wasn't happy with the way it turned out. The problem was that I decided that a black and white version would work best, but no matter how I adjusted it (in terms of both contrast and tone) it didn't look right.

Anyway, I took another look at it today and tried a different approach – partially desaturating it and adding a variable tone – and now like it a lot better.

As always, let me know what you think.

Oh, and my apologies for the lack of recent updates but all the kids have been ill resulting in me and Libby having a string of small coughing children interrupting our sleep for about the last two weeks. They're all ok, but it's starting to take its toll on us: we both need more sleep.
