Black and White images can be very powerful and expressive. As a photographer one looks to highlight contrast here.
In this gallery are my attempts at taking monochrome images. When I take B&W pictures, I shoot with the black and white setting on versus capturing the scene in color and converting it later. I specifically try to look for settings that I think will look good as a monochromatic image. Not all scenes make good B&W pictures. This makes it more challenging for me.
