This conversion is rather powerful if you ask me. It truly does resemble a pen sketching - sharp with etched contrast, good job.

This one is much better, works well, certainly looks like a pencil sketch.

Thanks Leon,

Just a try-out ...
Have seen this done by someone els and I liked what he did so I gave it a try myself..
It's not 100% yet but I will get there after playing a little more...

G'Day Fons:

I vaguely recall seeing this before - not the color original, but another B&W 'sketch' but it was much more washed out; this one I like!

Years ago there were times in my B&W shooting/printing days when I would bleach the silver out of the photo paper. I am so glad that none of us have to use any of those toxic chemicals any more.

Lately, I've been caught up with shooting color but I'm sure the time will come when I begin to dabble with digital B&W images.

Hi Leon,

Yeah nowadays we are so lucky with our software , no chemicals to use anymore...

I'm trying to get better in this kind of work, I myself like the pencil drawing effect..
Still working and learning .....;-)))
