B+W Wednesdays: Strike a Pose!

the long road

Sooo... Isabel and I went to a baby shower on Saturday.
After the gift opening and eating, we decided to
go out in the backyard to play with the puppy.
These shots were too bright due to the Florida sun.
The light was strong and harsh but... the poses were sort of cool.
I had fun cropping, editing and converting them to B+W.

Here are the three original shots:






And here are the edited versions of the same three:
(I really like the sassiness of all of them, especially the last one.)

What do you think?

I think they're pretty! I like how you extracted the background before converting to black and white. Much cleaner that way and it helps the lovely details of the photo really jump out at you!
