With all due respect, that just looks weird. It is totally non-aesthetic IMHO, and looks "gimmicky." Sorry to be harsh, but that's my opinion.
You haven't hurt my feelings but I am curious as to why you think it is non-aesthetic or looks gimmicky. The post was to explore a different way of making a B&W conversion so I picked an image that would be challenging from a color range conversion standpoint. This is the original color image to show you what I had to do to get where this image sits now...for me, it is quite successful on this point..
