A few different techniques used here for the conversions. Just posting to see which version you guys might like best.

1. Used a fully black layer and set the blend to Color - Lucis - Exposure - 15%

Good jod indeed! I prefer the second version to the first one, since it is more confined to the essence through the tighter cropping. I also liked the portrait of your step son in #3. The turned face adds a dimensional feel to it (as with a sculpture!), while directing the beholder's gaze in accordance with his and thus allowing a movement in the image. It might require a selective high radius sharpening on the face though.
