In the pursuit of consistency, I developed a BW preset called golden monochrome for my BW's. In reality, though I call it a preset, it merely is a BW treatment in lightroom + dual toning - but it's enough for my use. After the applying the preset, further edits can be done, usually including adjustments on contrast, Shadow+highlights, clarity, curves, and color balances. To my suprise, golden monochrome works well for landscapes, though I have yet to try it for people photography. In case anyone would like to have the preset (or really, the values for the dual toning), shoot me an email, and I'll get back to ya ASAP. Meanwhile, here's more pic with the golden monochrome preset.
