Really like the 4th shot. Definitely has B&W potential IMHO. Even with this jpeg version I got some good results. Needs to be processed in a way that retains the depth of the track going into the trees though - which takes some doing. Which I failed at. :-(

Would love to have a play with the original.

The first shot is great also and would make a fine print with a bit of B&W PP.

Photoshop does a pretty good job with the Black & White tool as well as a bit of Brightness/Contrast adjustments. It's actually pretty straight forward and produces pretty good results with the right tweaking.

The only thing I've noticed that you have to be wary of, is that the sand patches start to look like snow. If you like that effect/confusion, that may be fine.

#1 seems more gray than B&W in my opinion. I would have liked a more sharply contrasting picture. I think the main reason is because of all the mud.

#3 I think the framing produces a little too much linear dead space in the photo...

My apologies if my criticism seems too harsh :/

I do quite like #4 in B&W though, I suggest playing around with it in PS.
