Today's lesson was street photography. Kim says that black/white is good for most street photos as there usually is a lot of distraction in the background. I cropped this photo to eliminate most of the distraction and I do like the b/w effect. I adjusted to black/white and also used my Topaz Black/White Effects filter.
I used Sebastian's technique for sharpening and together with the Topaz filter, it really brought out the details in the dog's coat. This was a photo I shot with my iPhone in Venice Beach.
