I think you did very well with the B&W conversion, but I'm not sure that the HDR provided the best base for that conversion.  When I see this much light on the floor under a canopy, it's hard to reconcile that with my experiences in similar environments.  The HDR may have the full range of B&W tones, but that range is distributed within the frame much differently than would be expected.  There are also some halos around the main branches of the largest tree, and I wonder if B&W makes them more visible here than in the color rendition.
