A Storm is Approaching

A few friends have commented on my recent post with the apple images. Apparently I was so excited about experimenting with black and white that I didn’t notice how much impact the color image lost through the black-and-white conversion. I see their point, but to be honest, I think the black-and-white image wins at least as much from the added texture and stronger overall contrast.

Today I’ve chosen a different image for practicing, and I hope you all will agree that the black and white image is much stronger than the color one.
