Default Lunar Photography - Moonset

This one is from my archives, I took it in January. But I liked the b&w conversion of this sunrise/moonset picture.

Thanks! I was happier with this shot as a black and white than I was as a color shot. I've been surprised at how many landscape type pictures do work well in b&w, I always think of color being so important. But it isn't necessarily so.

Wonderful image! and the B&W gives it much greater impact.

In the "old" days, using film I used to shoot black and white quite frequently. Now that I am photographing digitally, colour seems to dominate. I think many people, myself included, tend to overlook the use of black and white for many images. Thanks for sharing.
