I think Black and white conversions of images weather portraits of landscapes can be just the finest way to present a picture. Having said that getting it right is also one of the hardest things to achieve.
Last year I went with the family to India on hols.
This is a shot I took of a set of arches in a temple near Agra.
I always struggle with the conversion. One problem is that when Im looking at an image, Im not sure what it is that I want to achieve with it. Then, having started I find it hard to know when to stop!!
Having said that, with this image, I wanted to make the most of the different hues and texture, and use light and shade to draw the eye through the arches to the square door in the wall at the back.
Apart from an honest opinion of my efforts here, how do you look at a colour image and decide what to do and how to do it...?
Looking forward to your responses,
