On the whole, I tend to favour colour photography but sometimes a scene suggests itself to me in black and white. When colour is gone, the outlines or structure of a landscape come to the fore.
Black and white landscapes work best if contrast is strong, with at least some true blacks and whites, not just shades of grey.
Converting an image taken on a bright summer’s day to black and white can add drama, if the subject seems to demand it.
You can add a tint if you want a particular mood…
or a different slant on a familiar scene.
Do you ever shoot landscapes in black and white?
