When I was in Banff in terms of film I was shooting black and white, not colour; the only colour images I shot were with my iPhone, so here is a comparison of almost the exact same image, one taken with my Rolleiflex, the other with my iPhone. I know colour is more popular these days, but there is still something about black and white that makes it my “mother tongue” as far as photography is concerned.

It’s amazing how different things ‘pop’ and really jump out at you depending on whether the image is b&w or colour!
I find the colour photo has more value contrast than the b&w and hence is more interesting to me. Now, if the b&w was given a contrast boost, I might find that interesting too. As it is, its range of tones is narrow and lacks energy.
