The second image was done in Photoshop.

I then merged all three images using merge as HDR and then flattened the image.
Finally I added a levels adjustment and brought the blacks and midtones up slightly to increase the contrast a touch.
Sorry Phil, I mean how are you actually converting to back and white which is what you were talking about in the original post. Was it a black and white layer, desaturation, convert to monochrome, via LAB mode... that sort of thing.
Or... did you shoot in directly in black and white.
