Just want feedback on this B/W

This my first attempt at getting that silver tone to a B/W image. I used three curves layers a brightness and contrast layer and a black and white film layer. All set at differant opacity.

Re: Just want feedback on this B/W

I think you are headed in the right direction, but the background has pixel banding from the amount of manipulation. The silver tone isn't quite there, try setting the adjustment layer (contrast) to screen and/or set a curves layer to brighten the highlights (set to luminosity- and play with the layer properties "Blend If" sliders", adjust opacity to suit your taste. Careful with the blue channel since her shoulder is having some extreme contrast in her skin and looking not very flattering..

Ok re did the curves layer and the contrast layer. Deleted the the blue curves layer. Set the contrast to screen. Made another blue curves layer and lightened it to help with the shoulder
