This was an experiment using one of presets of TOPAZ Black & White (2), newly released.

I'd like to know if anyone installed it and then had to uninstall and re-install the PhotoFXLab plug-in. I did and had a bad experience which TOPAZ has not sorted out yet. DARN! I can't use PhotoFXLab now, and I REALLY liked it! #1516082

Great treatment on both photos, Michelle. Love the tone on first one. #10580056

Interesting name for such a fierce(but-also-noble)-looking man, Michelle. Both photos are well-shot, especially after that nice man let you get on your hands and knees to move in closer...Intrepid is an excellent adjective in this instance. #10580104

Monnie Ryan 2/23/2013 5:47:40 AM

I'll sure give you a high score for your ducking ability! :-D Well done! #10580106

Wonderful photography Michelle, both could easily grace the front cover of a sports mag!! #10580108

Really wonderful b/w portrait! Love the pose and the expression that you caught! #10580209

Worth the effort...a great portrait of this super athlete. Very well done. #10580259

He will win this fight. I love reading about all you had to do to get this shot as usual, persistence is rewarded with a gold winning picture. I love the intensity of his face as he gets ready to do some more work out. Love your people photography Michelle. Have a wonderful weekend my friend. #10580272

Jill Odice 2/23/2013 8:32:15 AM

You did what you had to do to get this wonderful closeup! Well worth probably getting stepped on :-) #10580297

Martha R. Mazon 2/23/2013 8:45:33 AM

You are indeed, Michelle! Great job on this evocative and revealing portrait, expertly presenting in rich B&W tones. #10580309

Michelle, Great capture and presentation in BW. Even better work now that we know the "whole story." #10580387

Nice portrait, great tones! PS - the bridge was originally a railroad bridge used to haul copper ore from the Kennecott mine. It is vehicular now but only one lane. I walked it a couple of times. There is a catwalk below the deck that you can also walk on. #10580570

Terry Cervi 2/23/2013 6:20:20 PM

Good for you, Michelle. You do what you have to for those "winning" shots!! Fantastic! #10580819

Carol L. Fowler 2/23/2013 6:45:38 PM

Wow- 48 and still the champ! I always root for the Mature guy! #10580845

Barbara Waldoch 2/23/2013 9:28:23 PM

You did a great job, Michelle! #10580954

Rona L. Schwarz 2/23/2013 9:59:08 PM

Another terrific B&W portrait of this star athlete,Michelle - it was well worth the effort to capture him! I recently installed Topaz's B&W_2 (which is a big improvement, I think), but I don't have PhotoFXLab. They seem to have a lot of problems with it, however. #10580978

Robert K. Bemus 2/23/2013 11:23:09 PM

That guy is gnarly. Great portrait and editing, Michelle!! You definitely get the Most Intrepid award for this!! #10581000

Renee Doyle 2/24/2013 12:29:20 AM

The things we need to do to get the job!!!! Worth the effort Michelle - fantastic portrait! #10581061

Most intrepid? Definitely! Awesome portrait, Michelle! #10581340

Fabulous in B&W but I would not get in the ring with him. #10597620
