Black And White Photography!

It's so hard to get a good black and white picture.  With color images  you have so much else to play around as in color, fading and what not...with black and white photography it goes back to basics, a proper b&w photo in my opinion has to have the right contrast, and the right composition in order to work.  Black and white photography is an awesome challenge as I learn to do photography.  I like taking them.  It is a great exercise to build the photographic Eye!

For some reason this looks like it's sepia to me :S
