Today I had a little conversation via FlickrMail with Rob (carregwen) about BW conversion. I asked him for some techniques and tips for BW conversion. He replied me that a thread on the Cic forums would be a better way.
Therefore I want to ask him, and of course all other members to share some of their techniques and tips for black and white conversion to get one of those beautiful BW images with great contrast, mood and detail.
At first I would like to refer to the Cic BW conversion tutorial for the theory behind to conversion and some basic techniques.
So feel free to post your own tips here and discus yours with others.
