Default Seeking Advice on B&W

Hey Guys,

I'm a huge fan of B&W shots. I had always just used grayscale (Honestly...), but now I found out about mixing channels.

Aside from being backlit.. lol - How is this for B&W?

It appears to have a red tint to it.

Here is a thread form a few months ago that has some good specimens of B&W:
A Picture Is Worth 1000 Words. A Memory Is Worth 1000 Pictures.

Dark, muddy and flat, sorry im afraid B&W doesnt work here, B&W needs contrast, it can make bad lighting look better but dont expect every B&W that you convert to hide bad lighting to get in. P&W units are reasonably bright, what does this shot look like in color? Might have enough pop in color.
