I believe I have managed to go completely off using silver efex. I have always believed, to have a good black and white, one needs a good color image to start with. So, a lot of the upoints, is taken care of in PS where burning and dodging occurs in my workflow. All my shopping and color casting is done there. I then drop down to LR and convert there. There is other considerations when converting to black and white, contrast would be differant than in the color version, and other stuff. I believe I get much better control and closer to my vision using LR for the black and white conversion as I have all the brushes and control that is needed to convert and correct. so, what do you think?
