This was just a random B&W shot that i took. I like how it looks but I also think there isnt enough to it. I guess i just dont know what a good B&W photo needs. Could anyone give me some C&C and also some other simple B&W examples similar to mine. Thanks

i think it would look great if you cropped off about 1/2 of the gray sky area. make it more of a landscape style picture. it accentuates it and helps the viewer focus on the subject.
