This is a short description of the steps I took to develop an image in Capture One.  The image to the left is my example starting point.  This is Out Of The Camera with only slight edits.   Click on an image to see the larger version. 

Step 1

I lightened the tree up to make it stand out a little more.  

Step 2

I darkened the background to emphasize the tree even more.  

Step 3

I thought the grass in the foreground was a little too bright, so I dropped the brightness down a little. 

Step 4

Finally, I converted it to Black and White.  This shows the advantage of using the Color Editor in Capture One since I now have both a color and black and white version of the photo with the same edits.
