I Love Black and White
There are a lot of ways to get a black and white picture, I've try some of them, this one I use a Green Channel, copy it and paste onto different layer and just play with level, sometime Red channel give a great result but that one depending on the colors of the subject. Usually people use Red channel to get a nice skin tone.
A bit technical here, I've got a lot of email from our friend all over the world regarding how I convert my pictures to black and white, so this is one of it...
