Understanding Black & White

I’m trying to understand about B&W and sepia, and when and how to use it.
Being very color orientated, I find it hard to get a handle on it. Sometimes I’ve managed to get it right, but I don’t know what I did. It’s all hit and miss with me.

Here’s one that seemed to work really well for me. I showed it on Flickr and got good comments…

What elements make up a good B&W/sepia photo? How do you know whether it’s best to use greyscale or sepia?
