Black and White and Other Monochromes
I'm not (not yet, anyway) a committed black and white or monochrome photographer. I do from time to time try my hand at transforming some of my color images into monochrome (usually black and white), but don't pretend to have any particular skill in this area. Nevertheless I've decided to collect some of those efforts to this gallery. Occasionally, but not always, I'll include the original color versions for comparison. I'd welcome comments and suggestions for improvement, recommendations for software, techniques, tips, etc. that would help me improve my efforts in this field.
