Black and White

Sometimes when you are taking a picture to capture "the lines," black and white works better than color. Here's an old mountain cabin deep in the woods of the Blue Ridge Mountains, shot this week. What do you think? Below you can see a more carefully crafted version of the black and white image, using (Photoshop) Image>Adjustments>Black & White and boosting or dropping back the color scales to get exactly the tones n the shadows I wanted. Kind of tricky, and takes two monitors so you can compare as you work (if you right click on the image tab you can get it to open in a new window, which you can move to the other monitor).
