I LOVE this photo!!! WOW!!! Ordinarily, I wouldn't think a sunset would be a good BW subject but that theory's out the window. Cool, cool shot. Simple, but unique. I don't think I've ever seen a B&W sunset.

I've never seen a b&w sunset too. I guess it's because a sunrise has the best colors possible in nature. I'm sure this photo would have been better in color (IMHO)

Good, sure, but don't you think ordinary? Sunsets also cast long shadows, contrasts are highlighted, silhouetting, things that play well in B&W too.

Nick thanks for the comments.

Tim I need to wait about 15 more minutes for the colors to really start to come out. The people I was with were getting cold so had to keep going. But here is the original anyway.

I personally like the B&W. I love sunshines and sunsets, butI've never though in doingthem in B&W. Good experiment with great results !!!

I think B&W is also good for high iso shots. Any noise that might be present in the photo can called the artistic application of film grain.

msantos as I saidabove needed to keep moving others were getting cold. I felt the color was lacking so used a free PS & PSP plug in called Virtual Photographer to convert to BW. I like the way this plug in changes to BW better than just changing the saturation level.Thanks for the comments.

I prefer the color. What is causing the vignetting in the lower left corner?
