I just had a look at your video and thought it was very good. I have been a an enthusiast of the b/w image for many years and usually work with that genre for the majority of my street and landscape work. I only shoot for colour when the image would benefit from it.
I have been through many good tutorials on the web, but a book I like at my side when working on an image, is Michael Freeman's "Digital Black and White." I also have a copy of Ansel Adams' greyscale chart, which I often open side by side with an image I am about to convert. I find that, combined with the eyedropper in CS4s B/W conversion tool very useful.
If you care to look beyond the first five pages of my Flickr site, you can see quite a few examples of my early b/w work. Page 7 in particular. My next project is to try some long exposure b/w landscape work.
Thanks for posting the link. Some very useful hints for people to digest.
