Art is always subjective I suppose, and B&W in particular can be an acquired taste. I particularly enjoy the timelessness of B&W, although I sometimes struggle to know whether I should use it or not.

I would be interested to know what you don't like about this particular photograph; the composition or the lack of colour?

Re: Landscape-esque

I think its the black building which kinda blocks my view. The wet road certainly leads ones eye to a landscape which I can't really see. B/W works quite well here, colour would not suit for certain.

Just my Humble opinion. As said if Steve likes it, then that is ball game and match.....

I am often wrong.. more so than I am right... That's what the wife says anyway...

So, I can't possibly persuade you to buy a signed copy - I'm doing a limited run at 250 each. 😂

You can get away with using a camera with a red dot at the moment, but it might not be allowed after Brexit.
I agree

Steve, I thought you might like this quote, by American photographer Andri Cauldwell, which I came across today: "To see in colour is a delight for the eye but to see in black and white is a delight for the soul."

Re: Landscape-esque

Interesting thought.

I really like to see B&W done well, but the subject needs to be appropriate.

I also wonder whether the art of using colour filters with B&W film has been lost?

Thanks for posing, John.
B&W help removes the extraneous allowing the photographer and viewer to see the form more easily. Colour is generally more difficult to get right and comes bound with in-built emotions , eg sense of cold and warmth. Most photographers find colour photography complicated and difficult to manage, generally including far too many colour elements in the capture. They should try B&W.
