I answer this question: "Steve asked this question (ask your Gimp related question here.): Hey Alex, first, thanks for your awesome tutorials that showed me the power of layer masks, they really helped me! I was experimenting with black and white photos and I wondered how to create an awesome black and white photo from a colored original. Just desaturating it, in most cases, does not give an satisfying result, the photo just appears “gray” to me. What I want, is a sharp photo full of contrast, but on the other hand it should stay realistic. Do you know how I reach such an effect best? Thanks for your help, Steve"
