For black and white conversions, you want to make sure you have a photo that is good to convert in the first place. I knew the water would look pretty in bw, and that there was enough contrast and shadow here to make it pop. Depending on the light, I often decrease highlights and increase contrast. Playing with the color sliders is key in bw conversions! Don’t forget that bw photos contain color! The grass is made darker by playing with the yellow and green sliders! I encourage trying to convert well lit photos often to nail down your style!
