I Heart Faces: " Dramatic Black and White" Challenge

I am entering this photo into the I Heart Faces "Dramatic Black and White" photo challenge. The challenge has lots to do with post processing and the dramatic look and feel of a photo.

This photo was taken yesterday at my dear friend Kira's anniversary party. Here she is swinging our daughter around on the dance floor in happiness. Now that is my kind of drama! I blurred the background to make them stand out and then converted it to black and white. I really like the photo and the effect.

I've been experimenting with removing or altering the background to emphasize the main part of the black and white photo. I like how the kids are almost glowing!
