Great b+w conversion, but blown highlights in sky stand out a bit more, particularly the two big ones right of center. I would personally handle it by dialing down the white point and possibly adding noise to just those areas. YMMV.

Being stupid here but can't find anything in PS or LR with regard to the white point...

In the meantime, I have taken a brush with 25% on highlights and used it do burn those spots...

google "photoshop white point" for a bunch of stuff. Basically setting the white point means selecting which tone you want converted to absolute white (0 hue, saturation and value). This is not what you would need to do. You would e.g. use the eyedropper to select the blown highlights, then use levels or curves to slightly reduce the brightest value in the selected area (see attachments -- note this is an older version of photoshop). If you look at the little arrow just above the "250" in the second image, what you are doing is re-setting the white point to that value. Once you've got it open and mess around with it, it quickly becomes obvious.

While still selected, you could then add noise in the selected area. I would do this on a separate layer, to enable changing opacity as needed. You could also do levels/curves as an adjustment layer enabling you to fine-tune the result. I suspect you can do similar things in LR, though I haven't used it.

Using the burn brush can work with finer detail, with large flat areas, you run the risk of visible streaking which may be unintentional.

Edit: just want to add you did a great job with the burning! Whatever works, eh?

It's the first time I have used the burn brush and kept the amendments. I think the texture of the clouds helped me. Thanks for the assistance above by the way.

One thing I noticed on the 645Z that I was loaned. I have my own back now, having picked it up on my way back from the Lake District yesterday. The loan copy's top LCD screen was completely different to mine. The EV compensation had five levels visible and was on the left whereas mine has 3 on each side and is on the right. I thought it might have been a firmware thing, but it seems it wasn't as I have just upgraded to 1.22. So it seems that top plate LCD is different on the latest Z's...

Here are some Fuji 160NS shots I took in the Montparnasse cemetery in Paris. I had wanted to re-visit the cemetery we went to on out previous trip but I'm not sure which one it was so I made do with this one. I was about to put the 645 away and shoot some B&W 35mm when I realised that it was about to close (thanks to a French gentleman who luckily spoke Spanish) so I don't think I got any. I need to buy some more Ilfosol and develop those rolls.

The first one of the chair is my favourite from what I've scanned so far and one of my favourite film shots ever.

I recently entered to the world of medium format. I think it wasn't a bad decision but I felt differently when I spent my whole salary to the gear. :P
This is self-developed and self-scanned and it was shot on MEDIAWAVE that is a music / film / ethno hybrid festival in Komárom, Hungary.

Kinda gloomy outdoors yesterday, so I took advantage of some soft window light to shoot some tulips indoors. Focus stack with the A120/Macro on the Z:

Lovely Mike. How many shots did it take to stack that single tulip in focus?
