Bloody BW Toning Again

I am so struggling with my BW toning. I think I have read som many things on the subject, the BW conversion isn't a huge problem but getting nice tones is.

I live near where this shot is taken. Although I don't want to copy styles, I am trying to recreate something similar in shot and tones. Once I do this I have an understanding of how it's done.

Im assuming, it's ND grads, Polarizer, ND filter e.t.c it's the colour work. It might be infra red Im not sure but if you have a look at this series of work and his seascapes any help is appreciated on this..



His RPS image on the 1st page is another example of the toning I'd like to achieve.

Once I understand it, I can work with it...

Thanx in advance

Re: Bloody BW Toning Again

he may have used ND to get a longer exposure to achieve the motion blur of the clouds
(1st image)... if it is not done in post.

convert to BW to get the luminosity you are after

add vignette

add gradiant-map layer (experiment with the gradient)
