Dave--Those are some very nice and highly creative shots. With the people it's obvious why good "anti-ghosting" is crucial. I decided not to tread on black and white in the article since like you I use nik's Silver Efex for the actual conversion and including another section on it would have started making the article incredibly long, but I agree it is a powerful technique.
I've actually also had some very dramatic successes combining HDR with Infrared to produce black and whites. The combination works particularly well on some of the temples in southeast Asia and scenes of foliage. That's probably a good subject for another article since Infrared, like HDR, continues to grow in popularity.--David
