Add a little Chocolate to you images!

I have a pretty sick child today. My daughter Holly is not feeling well. Temp was 102 this morning.
Since I may be missing for a few days, here is a tip.

Chocolate filters have become all of the rage. You can make your own. :~)
Take you plain old black and white and add a little chocolate to it....
After you have completed your black and white conversion.
(I like mine heavy on the darks)
Create a new layer above the image and fill with a nice dark brown color. Here is one of my favorites. (3f2c02) Change the blend mode to soft light, you can also try color. Adjust opacity as needed. Done!

Here is the latest picture of my daughter Holly. She is 16. A black and white conversion with a chocolate filter added. The image didn't have a very good background so I changed that also. Remember, thinking outside the box is a good thing! Be Kreative!
