Bickie in Black and White

I do really like the atmosphere and feeling of black and white photos, so I’ve decided it’s about time I learnt a bit more about how to properly convert colour photos to black and white and how to adjust the tones. I’ve found some black and white processing software by Nik software that I’m trialing. I took this photo of Bickie (aka Fluffybum) awhile back and when I came across it in my archives (i.e., photos still to sort) today, I thought it would be a good test to show off his white paws. For these ones, I’ve just tried a couple of the available preset convert options.

Here he is in glorious colour:

And here he is in some black and white variations:
