Often, we look at a black and white image and remark how much better it looks than if it were in colour.
There’s a reason for that – colour is distracting. Black and white tends to show more of the shape and texture of objects; things that are often lost when colour is in the image.
Now, I’ve said that Tankwa’s in the desert, and it’s pretty stark out there. It’s perfect for black and white, especially where you have subtle tones of a single colour, so I decided to try the image below in a mellow, soft graded B&W style. I think it worked.
