I'm on board with this one.  The contrast works.  Like the position of the fan against that ghastly display.

The added contrast and high structure work well in this scene. They helps separating the woman  from the background and give that extra punch.

Siver efex is a nice tool indeed. I also use it sometimes (neutral mode and adding several control points)

This is a very touching one in the series. Sometimes I wish to see this pictures in color, not because I don´t like them in bw, but I believe that could also work in colors quite well.

There is another perception I already adressed to Francis, that the very sharp contrasts (which you always have with digital cameras) make the pictures somewhat too clean or aseptic in my perception (and this is just my personal gusto). In Photoshop or easier with a bw plug in like Efex this can be easily smoothen which give the photo more soul IMO.
