I love B&W photography but only converted a few of my color shots over the last few years to B&W.

I guess I wasn't really sure how to get the best results when converting color to B&W.  I'm beginning to look though some of my older shots to see which would make good candidates for B&W but I was wondering if some folks here could take a look at the few I've done and give me some tips on how to make a more dynamic and eye pleasing conversion from color shots.  I feel like many of my B&W conversions look a bit flat so any help you folks can provide would be greatly appreciated.
