Lovely work - #1 is my favourite!!!
+1. Great processing too!
Yup, its also the composition, the DoF and the trees in the background that does it for me
All great. Which lens please ?
Yep, awesome black&white landscapes!
A old Konica Hexanon 40mm f1.8 manual focus lens a great lens on the A7.
I like the tonality you're getting - I'll be curious to learn more about your PP workflow.
I must confess, I don't do many B&W exteriors. I mostly engage it when a mix of highly unnatural light sources makes a pleasant color rendering next to impossible. (Or when B&W just plain makes the image work better.)
My standard B&W approach is to convert in Lightroom with "Clarity" at +45. (Comes as close to Tri-X as anything else I've tried.)

Looks like Silver Efex Pro to me (the opening post photos).
Great image, Jeff. Boy processing is mixed. I shoot in RAW process in LR5.3 and usually do my B&W conversion in Nik Silver Efex plug in but not always. Sometimes LR's B&W conversion work well for me. I just process to what I think the image should be, it is just tweaked unit I'm happy.
