Branch Arch B&W

Branch Arch B&W

Its been a very long time since I’ve thought much about Black and White photography. In the film days everyone started with Black and White, mostly because it’s possible to process by hand without massive expense. I spent several years doing nothing but B&W so I burned out on it for a long time. In the digital age, there is no reason to start in B&W, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have it in your mind. B&W reminds you to think about shapes, shadows, and contrast, which can do magic with pictures that wouldn’t otherwise be special. I’m posting this one with it’s color starting point as well. Which one do you like better?
