The black and white image offers so much visually. The texture, contrast and tones are simply intriguing to me. I find that I look at black and white images much longer than I do their color counterparts. There is a certain mystery for me. After enjoying the scene as a whole and then analyzing the textures in the scene, I often find myself analyzing the image to try to determine what time of year or what time of day the image was captured. Sometimes I try to visualize the image in color. I understand everyone has their own take on this subject. Please don’t take it the wrong way either. I love and enjoy color images. But, I must say that there is just something a little more magical about a good black and white image.
