Default Speed Challenge 21

OK, this assignment is a bit more 'serious' than recently. What I'm looking for here is for the image below to be converted to monochrome. The rules are quite simple:

1. You are not allowed to add any foreign objects (you may crop if needed)
2. The image must end up as essentially monochromatic, (but that can be any tone that you feel is appropriate - duotone or tritone is also permitted)
3. The competition will run for 5 days - so no slacking !
4. The winner will be decided by myself, and will get to decide on the next speed challenge. If there is only one entry, then you are the winner .

So, let's see some amazing conversions, apply the dodge and burn and any other tools you wish to make the image really stand out as mono perfection.




An example just to get it going:



A large (1MB) file for those who prefer a bigger file to edit with (right-click to download, and please resize before posting here).
