I recently posted a collection of black and white photos to this blog and over at redbubble. On many of these images I've used one of my favourite Photoshop actions > moonlight.

To be completely honest, I'm not exactly certain what I'm doing when I fiddle with the myriad of wonderful little sliders on all those Photoshop adjustment options, but sometimes magical things occur. When I get a series of little slide motions that seem to work well together I'll collect them into an action and give it a fancy name... like moonlight or starlight (when black/white or sepia would have been simpler and made more sense).

And then I love to randomly throw photos in and see what comes out the other side. Sometimes this can keep me entertained for hours. I'm a simple soul.

As shown below: original | moonlight | starlight

If you're interested you can try out the moonlight/starlight PS actions, but if you use either of these and achieve anything worth mentioning, let me know... K? Thx :o)
