There's a free download on 'how to capture proper tonal range' in black and white landscapes. Check out you need to join but there's no cost for this particular download.

You missed Marc Koegel's workshop, Karoline. Hmmmm, Maui or Marc, know which one I would choose.That question was asked and Marc suggested to shoot in colour and convert. Recent Outdoor Photographer (Dec.2010) Q & A article by George Lepp echos this thinking. To quote 'The best place to start,...,is with a RAW-format, well-exposed, sharp color capture with controlled contrast.The more quality information you've captured, the more you can do with it. Why limit your options by capturing in black and white?'

Frank's suggestion to test and share could be interesting.
