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?

Thanks, Dennis.

I like them a bit lighter, Dennis. Doesn't mean it's not right.

Dennis, I'm with Phil on this.  It seems dark on my LED monitor.

 

Also, when I first looked at the image, I thought that it might be a bit flat.  Not so sure now. 

 

Finally, it seems to have a bit of a sepia/yellow colour cast.  Part of the plan?  :)

Thanks all.

Yes, I did warm the BW a bit.

My monitor is calibrated for Adobe RGB, but I think the size reduction and the conversion to JPEG crushes the blacks and makes them darker. I got to work on that part.

Thanks, Dennis.

I would say, the whites of your eyes need to be white. You think? They look white in color photo.
