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 2017 have been gathered here in one place from their various albums. Don’t miss these other black and white photo albums:
