Very cool conversions so far from soft to harsh. I did mine on the harsh side. Used a few G'MIC presets such as Local Normalization to push the contrast and a few other things. Need to address the noise, but grain is a variable with b/w conversions too imo (was going to add a grain texture but decided to be lazy tonight). As you can see, there is so much potential to b/w conversions. Below is a cool sight to explain various concepts of b/w capture/conversions too (but have to admit, I did mine my way which as it should be).
