As promised here are the shots from my Sunday constitutional that worked in b&w. Neither the fir cone nor the park bench worked very well as b&w shots; there wasn't enough variation in hue values among the elements of the shots to make interesting pictures. The other four worked quite well, though. Rather than use Photoshop's built-in b&w conversion function, I again went to the Exposure 2 plug-in to try out some of the classic b&w film emulations. The last three used the Kodak T-MAX 100 setting, a medium grain panchromatic film well-suited to detail in photos. The first shot used the Ilford HP5 Plus 400 setting, a film that deals better with varied lighting conditions, as this situation with both wooded and open areas would call for.
