...but AR (Uluru!...tch tch) has been shot for the colours so many times. Maybe there needs to be a B/W statement of the sheer monolithic "rockiness" of it.
However, to be B/W, the shot needs drama, provided by sharpness and contrast. At a very basic level, I tried a Clarify (Paint Shop Pro) and then again, and a crop of top and bottom. It can be a dramatic shot. Even the clouds have drama if emphasised.

Photo of a great rock but unfortunately I'm not attracted to the photo. I think the black and white is lacking it for me - Ayer's Rock is such a magnificient colour and it shouldn't be taken in black and white, in my opinion... there is also no real focus in the picture and it all seems a bit boring and point-and-shooty... unless that was your intention. That's all just my opinion though. Don't take offence to it, it might have pleased other people, just not me.
