Have you ever wondered how people create those amazingly in depth black and white photos? Me too! So I might not know how to do those freaking amazing ones, but I do know how to make some pretty nice ones. First do not edit your photo! You can crop/resize or what have you but nothing else. Next duplicate your photo. Then desaturate/change to black and white. Next, open your levels/curves and increase the brightness while upping the contrast, but not to the point of distorting the photo or ruining the depth/clarity of the photo. Next, play with the sharpness, hint, I didn't say un-sharp mask.But the two main things I have to tell you are:
1. Play with each photo and don't expect that the same editing will work on all photos, each needs it own time and attention in making it look good.
2. Get CC. Someone's bound to know more about it than me.

Oh yeah, you need at least 2 photos that are not from the same photo session. (Not taken at the same time.) That's it for requirements. Two black and white photos.

eta: oh yeah, after you desaturate/change to black and white then you can go on to editing.
