B&W has always been a problem to me. For one, i have never considered it as fine art because of my background as a top gun developer. B&W Tv’s are long gone and so are B&W films. Life as designed and perceived has always enjoyed the beauty of colors. The rainbow exist because of water droplets reflecting the angle of light and water is a necessity to life.
However, sometimes in the absence of light, where colors are dull or those pesky yellow indoor ambience casts the whole picture to be yellowish…a B&W conversion is warranted.
This was taken in pure darkness with only her phone lighting up her face. Leica Xvario.
A cafe in busan hosts a number of happy felines to keep you warm. The whole ambiance however is yellowish, since anyone could imagine the orangey colors of this cat, a B&W conversion makes sense here.
Ran this image thru Nik Silver Efex Pro. If you are a fan of B&W, you would love this software. Have a nice day 🙂
