My first foray into the world of black and white

Fountain in black and white

This is a picture of a small fountain at the same park in Mitsukaido. I've always loved these kinds of symmetrical geometric shapes. But when I looked at the picture, I thought the colours were kind of dead. I tried a bunch of things in Picasa, but it still looked really bland.

Then I got the idea to try it in black and white. Boom! Much better. What do you think?

Yup, you got it. This is very nice in b&w. I find that lots of photos are improved when converted to b&w. Often if I have a photo that I like, but doesn't have the desired impact, I'll make b&w and it's immediately much better.
