This is an old ruined historical home in Faulconbridge that I shot today.

I did a B&W conversion because it was a beautiful day with a bright blue sky and I felt that it didn't quite capture the mood of the photo. I am reasonably happy with the result but not 100%. Think I will wait for a miserable dreary day and see if I can capture a better shot.

I agree with you, even with the B&W conversion, to me it doesn't have "the mood" you were after. Too many highlighted parts to feel 'gloomy'. A dreary day should get you a better shot. Good luck, looks like it was a neat house at one time.

Did you try different color filters in the conversion process?

Dropping a deep red filter over a deep blue sky = nearly black sky in B&W.

Tweaking the color temp under the conversion (if you're in LR) can also give some interesting effects.
