If in RGB mode, most of the time this works better with images, adjustments,
to enhance contrast, select a spot on the low end of the scale and descend,
select a second spot on the high end of the scale and rise.
to change lightness/darkness, select a spot in the center of the scale and
descend or rise.
Then convert ot B&W with the desired technique.

I have the impression you have more control this way, as the
lightness/contrast function tends to burn out zones pretty quick, and
descends the quality of the image.

In RGB, you can also put a layer of yellow/green or yellowgreen (try
different opacities) over the selected zone or the entire image before you
convert to B&W. In Photshop CS it's even easier: images, adjustments, photo
