My Black & Whites

Looking at a photo in black and white compels me to ask one question.. 'Why?'
I usually think one thing when I see a black & white mystery. I think that object or scene or whatever the picture is of was so beautiful or so amazing, the photographer wanted to take away the color so that the viewer could just focus on that and not the obnoxious color going on in the picture.
Jk, I really dont think that, but it is good reasoning. Idk if thats the reason why photographers do that or not. I just made that up.. However I do like black and whites though.

That is one of the reasons I use black and white. At times, the color is just noise that takes away from the subject. If the tones are not just right because of some different kelven of lighting, then most times it is better in black and white. It allows the viewer to see the scene or individual for what it really is and not just contrasting colors. However, I do like contrasting tones in black and white photographs.

So pretty much what I just said..

Agreed
