Everybody, pay attention, this is how you shoot these big lenses. Leave the tripod in the trunk of the car. ;-)

I like DxO's FilmPack, which you can try for free.

Just Photoshop. I went with a duo-tone look, but I'm sort of meh about it.

FilmPack has dozens of classic B&W film emulations. I like the old Illford 25 and a couple of others. Remember when converting from color to B&W, if you use color filters, you get the same effects as putting the filters on a lens when you take the image. I mess around with that and contrast a lot to get the look that fits the image that I'm working.

FilmPack works as either a stand-alone or plug-in for DxO Optics Pro. Of course, I use it as a plug in and can see how changing color filters impacts the B&W image. I'm not sure how that works as a stand-alone.

Travel Under Sky of Madness by ddk632, on Flickr

Question -- it has a road in it; would you call this a landscape or something else? If so, what?

Road or not, I would call that a landscape.

It's that time of year. I'm seeing a lot more hawks around these parts.

Thanks David.

Rather than "pale" I'd say that yours is more subtle.

You know, with sunsets, I think that it's a real mistake to try to make more out of a sunset than what really happened. These days, thanks to HDR, the Saturation and Contrast sliders, you see lots of unreal sunsets. Yours shows us what really happened.

Mine is my attempt to show what really happened. I'd spent 30-minutes shooting this same sunset across a lake and got some okay shots, but the sun had gone behind the mountains and the clouds looked kind of plain and I started driving home. Luckily I rounded a corner and looked up to see this. Traffic was clear, so I pulled my car sideways in the road and shot this.

Keep trying and you'll sometimes get rewards.

Here's one of my earlier shots from this same sunset. I like it a lot, but it didn't have the unusual colors of the one we're talking about here:
