When Less is More

This photo of this old house in the heart of the mountain conflict in western Virginia between Confederate and Union troops was taken on a hot summer day when the light tended to wash out the colors anyhow. Solution? Convert it to black and white (Image menu>Mode) and up the contrast (Image menu>Adjustments) just a tad. Now, without the distraction of the weak color, the deteriorating lines of the house dominate the image.
