Conversion to BW (model pics)

Hello,

I have never been happier with my conversion to BW results than I am with these shots (all shot with Pentax iSTD):

In photoshop - instead of using desaturate and the playing with contrast - I used the channel mixer instead. On that dialog I clicked the "monochrome" check box. Then adjusted the mix of the "blue" channel to 50% and the "red" and "green" channels to something less - around 25%. To my eye this method produces much more pleasing gradients and nice contrast without blowing out whites. What do you guys think? How do you convert to BW?

Thanks,

Adam
