One of the things i love doing to a black and white photograph.

Is split-toning it!
Make the shadow areas blue-er and make the high-lights yellow-er.
You can follow this instruction/tutorial found at to properly split-toned an image.
Read it, it's really good.

But there's also a quick and dirty way of split-toning an image in GIMP. by using (while inside GIMP) select Colors -> Color Balance. Then a dialog window will pop up where you can select Shadows and make it blue-er then select Highlights and make it yellow-er.

 Here's a before and after split-toning using Colors->Color Balance in GIMP.
