Whatcha got?

I converted this image to b&w in order to reduce distractions and draw attention to baby's expression and gesture. My reason for the selective color? Because I can.
I was so excited to post this until I looked at my original again. Aren't those baby blues beautiful? Maybe I missed the most important part when I edited. I just don't know.
What do you think?


  1. Absolutely! Keep the baby blues! Perhaps leave the toy and the eyes blue and B&W the rest?
    And what are you using to edit? Photoshop? Picnik? just wondering...

  2. Thanks for the advice! I use Photoshop Elements 6. What do you use?

  3. I love the original, what in the world did you think was distracting in it?

  4. Um, hmm. Good question. I think it was mostly the chair and the lines on the floor. Goodness, Jess! I just love your new photo icon!

  5. I'm not an artist or a photographer, but I agree with your first assessment that something was distracting. The edited version focuses attention on his toy and then his face. Maybe blue in the eyes would tie them together visually.
