I'm also curious if anyone wants to share their B&W conversion techniques. I'm convinced that the best B&W shots are more than just desaturated. I don't think I've found the best method yet, but I've been playing around with several. So far the one I like the best is to desaturate, then bump the brightness down a tad (usually -10 or so) and the contrast up 10 or so.

That is easily the best thing on B & W conversions I have ever seen. I've had LR3 for well over a year and had no idea all that was possible.
