Recently someone asked Joel Grimes how he achieves the ultimate Black and White conversion. Well, he has tested several options in Photoshop and other programs to do just that and often revisit the topic to see if something new has come down the pike.

"I still find that capturing an HDR and processing it in 32 bit is undoubtedly the best way to get the greatest number of tones and the smoothest gradients possible.   In this tutorial, I'll teach you my entire workflow, and I have made available the raw files of an image of Death Valley, so you can follow along as I go through the process." - said Joel Grimes"
