Reader Tim Learmont asks:
Tim, thanks for (another!) great question. I hope that some other readers chime in with examples here, as I think we could see some good ones.
Yes of course the obvious choice for fall is color, since that is, to a large extent, what it's all about. (Shameless plug: go see this post, too) However one of the things that makes a good B&W is a large range of contrast, and that's something you have plenty of this time of year!
Take the example below. I shot this over the weekend with your post in mind, and I haven't done anything else to the images in post — these are both straight out of camera (they are two separate photos, but of the same thing). I don't think many would argue that the color one is better, however with a little care and love, I think the B&W could be really good. I may take some of my better color photos from the weekend and try to convert them, just to see what I can do, and post a follow-up.
Does anyone else have any amazing Fall photos that have made excellent black and whites?
