B&W Conversions. C&C welcome.

I has some time between appointments this week so I took a few photos along the waterfront in Queens.

I am starting to experiment with the direct black and white conversions using the Picture Wizard on the NX 300 menu.  I set my NX 300 to Raw and Superfine and the the JPG setting was set to Picture Wizard Classic (Black and White, with sharpness and contrast at both +2).  The first picture is the SOC Jpeg file just cropped to square. the next two are both processed with DXO Optics and DXO Film Pack from the raw jpg.

SOC just cropped.
