      That's a wonderful capture! Your BW conversions in this series are nicely done.

      Agree! Your photos were converted nicely, making a great difference with the built-in monochrome picture style.

      Thank you all very much! I spent a lot of time tweaking and fiddling with settings to make sure I got something that I felt was nice. Took forever playing with different results until I felt my eyeballs were going to just drop out of my head, but I think they worked out in the end...

      Would you mind sharing some settings you're using?
      I use the Olympus master to apply the monotone picture style on RAW files but it's seems not good at all, I may try to output a color file and then convert in Photoshops with "black and white" command next time.

      - Sure, I go into much more detail in this comment on my B&W set.

      I'm basically using a mixture of channel mixer mono conversion, and GIMP's GEGL c2g operation (_NOT_ using the default settings).

      You could also apply the channel mixer mono conversion directly to the RAW file in some raw converters (I am using UFRaw & dcraw personally). I would imagine the Oly software has something similar as well?

      At that point I would also output a color image and run my normal processing on it, and perhaps combine the two to smooth out the tones in the image overall.

      Thank a lot for telling your special techniques!
      Though I', not using GIMP but I think I could use similar functions in my Photoshop. Combining with different exposures is a smart idea!
      Many thanks!
