RAW capture, Lightroom 4, Silver Efex 2.
Image Edit: The first image I uploaded obtained a magenta hue to it when I uploaded it to FM. Not sure what happened. I have replaced the image with the version as I envisioned it without the magenta hue.
Thanks,
Aaron

I don't think that there is a specific recipe for GR files. However, everyone has his (hers?) own style... I would suggest to just tweak with B&W settings. I use Silver Efex Pro 2, but I am sure that other plugins or other recipes in Photoshop, Lightroom or other processors work just as well.

In my transition from film to digital, I always found that digital lacked midtone contrast - or brilliance. This is nowadays less of an issue with the various contrast, structure and clarity sliders that are available. And I feel that the GR DNG files provide great latitude to toy with.

I like for example to beef up contrast in Silver Efex, only to decrease the dynamic contrast slider, with a tad of 'structure'. But again - seeing is believing - this is hard to instruct, just give it a try.

Got back from Dreams Resort in Tulum, Mexico. Having just purchased a GR on here about a week or so prior, I challenged myself with shooting the entire week with just the GR. D600 only came out the last day

Great series of shots. I think my favourite of the bunch is "757 en route to CUN".
