HDR Photography in color and black & white

A lot of B&W photos you see these days were originally shot in color and converted to monochrome. While this works fine, it lacks some of the dynamic range that B&W film can deliver. So I took the approach of shooting first in color using three exposures to run through Photomatix and then converting to B&W. What do you think?
