I never used to like B&W, but after getting some more experience with photography in general, I tried out some B&W, and loved it.

Tell me what you guys think. I'm not used to thinking or visualizing subjects in B&W, so I'm open to all advice.

I have been a fan of b&w for many years. #2 is my favorite. Love how it draws your eye down through the building. The first one looks like it would look nearly the same if it was in color! Good job.

I grew up with B&W when it was the only alternative, when color film was hard to get processed and was way too expensive. I was so glad when color became readily available and cheap and I never looked back. Generally I dislike it, as it has about 1/3 of the visual data in it. I think it does have it's place though. Real B&W is different than Photoshop desaturated B&W though, with mich more graduation in the grays.

I don't think B&W displays well on electronic screens. Much better in real print.

I like the technique in 1 and 2. To me 3 is flat and boring. (To be fair, I also consider most of my shots boring too.)

You are capturing much of the allure of b&w in 2; decent highlight and shadow detail, good gradation and range. Technically good work

I think that you need to be constantly aware of the need to put some interesting objects/subjects into your work. Geometry is neat, but eventually you need more.

Keep it up.
