I accidentally took this picture of my friend while we were talking. I then noticed that it is interesting, so I used Lightroom to turn it to B&W, the result looks pretty good to me. What do you think ?

Not bad for an accident!!

Composition is good, exposure is good and you have certainly achieved an interesting moment...

I think that you may have overdone the processing a bit - I'd prefer to see some more detail in the blacks/deep shadows - especially the mouth with just looks like a black void - I can't help thinking I want to see some evidence of something in there!!

Thank you for your comments, especially the one about the black void :D You are right about the deep shadow part, I tried to make them a bit lighter, and the result looks more detail, a lot better :D I'll keep improving, again, thanks a lot :D

I agree with GTI, not bad at all for an accident. I do feel though as if the shot was over-sharpened, and I think it might be understandable considering that because it was an accident, the first shot might've not been all too sharp.

Anyways, the composition is quite interesting, and from my own imagination, I think it looks better that it would in color. Nice job :)
