Yes
Over the Swiss Alps yesterday evening and the light was beautiful. The mountains at this time of the year are quite drab and grey as the greenery dies back awaiting the snows, but the contrast between the highlights on the peaks versus the shadows of the valleys was really stunning to see.

I'd like ot get the whites a bit whiter without blowing anything out, but I'm going into unknown places editing in B&W for the first time properly.

D850, Nikon 24-70 f/2.8 shot at f/8 1/120 ISO64.

No
Same principles apply with B&W as colour. If using lightroom, hold down the alt key while moving the white & black sliders to see when you hit blow-out point, then back off just a few points.
