Dramatic skies in Photoshop?

    Hi all. I have some colour photos which have good dramatic skies. I would
    like to convert them into monochrome and get the effect of using a red
    filter with B&W film. You obviously get that with the red channel and I have
    tried printing just the red channel but id doesn't look right. How can I
    convert to B&W and keep the best contrast in the sky?

    Andrew.

    Try using Photoshop's Channel Mixer, heavy on the red but with enough of
    the other two channels to keep it looking ok.
