Sometimes I take a photograph which has nice composition, but because of various environmental conditions the color or contrast does not turn out well. No matter how I try to process the picture in Adobe Lightroom,
I just can't achieve a satisfactory result in color.
In order to salvage the worthwhile composition, I resort to monochrome processing. Quite often this works wonders, although sometimes I simply have to admit defeat and toss the photo on the virtual reject pile.
Besides the photo processing, I simply LOVE black and white photography! There is a certain beauty and majesty to a good monochrome image which the inclusion of color tends to ruin.
All of the black and white pictures I took during 2016 have been gathered here in one place from their various albums.
