    I converted this shot to B&W but I'm not quite satisfied with it. However, I can't quite put my finger on the problem. Any suggestions?

    what color is the cat (top of head)? Is it black or gray or brown? My initial impression is that the shadows have been lifted too much. Having a black cat, I know sometimes I go too far trying to reveal detail instead of just letting the shadows be shadows sometimes.

    The top of the head is dark gray, so that's a real possibility.
