This whole thread is an excellent mini-tutorial. David, I find your final version completely believable. Great work!

Have to agree with Eric.  This has been an interesting and instructive thread that actually stayed on point.  Well done everyone! ;D

Bad light (ie, not early or late enough in the day), so I've been doing a series from a recent visit to Arches National Park in Moab Utah and rendering to B/W (obviously). The clouds reminded me of smoke and I like the drama against the very dark sky, but is this esthetically viable? Is it a cliché? Does it work with only some images? All thoughts welcome!

Nice classic BW. If you worry what others think then make all variables of sky to show them to keep them happy. I like the black sky in your pix.
