A photographer would be crazy not to take advice from a retoucher they respect.
I think some of the best photographers are so focused on creating compelling imagery that all of the technical stuff falls behind, that's why they put together a great team of people to handle a lot of that stuff.

I think this can go for retouching too.... there's some very technical people out there who can write very good books on all aspects of photoshop and do countless seminars, but they might be not so good at retouching.... their time is invested in learning and teaching.... while some retouchers might have a very organic way of working and just sort of wing it by experimenting with different tools and not really read up on all the technicalities of it....

Vincent Versace's book "Welcome to Oz" has a couple chapters dedicated to B&W coversion in RGB color space. The techniques he describes yield the highest quality conversions IMO.

Re: How to have the widest and the richest graysca

You should see the following web page, then just click on the "English Version" link. Other than that, I'm not sure why it would not load, as it does on my browser. Like I said, some are a year or two old now, so I don't know that he is still maintaining the site very well.
