Joe, thats an interesting point about the weather.
Not weather-related, but it reminds me that I always liked this one of yours as well.

On the few occasions I attempted to convert a few shots to B&W the simple/short cut way (the only way I knew how really), I tended to run into some of the shortcomings that Andy and Colin mentioned.
Were you able to do a simple conversion to B&W like Weitse mentioned earlier, or did you have to employ any plug-ins etc?
Also while those concorde shots are outstanding that Anthony pointed out, I am not certain they'd all pass these days. They might. But, I could imagine one or all getting hit with a Bad Size, and then, possibly, Bad Centered, or even Bad Dupe and Bad Dark as well. That was 1999.
