Black and white photographs have a distinct charm to them that makes them truly fascinating. It could be because of their abstract nature that lets us see the world in a completely different light. This is especially true when it comes to landscape photography. Legendary photographer Ansel Adams' black and white landscape photographs of the American West are an inspiration to any landscape photographer.
Producing great black and white landscape photographs goes beyond converting the image to grayscale. It's important to understand which scene would work better in black and white than color. It's equally important to take control of the tone during the conversion process.
