A simple color photograph can have beautiful impact by simply making it black and white, for that purpose what you need is a color photograph and photoshop (i am using version CS2)
1. Open photoshop and open any image in it, for the purpose of this tutorial i have choose this picture of a very cute baby.
2. Once the image is open go to Image -> Mode -> Gray Scale
3. Photoshop will ask you "Discard Color Information" select Yes and you are done and will be presented with the image looking like this
