Monochrome vs Colour

I’ve always liked black and white movies, (or monochrome, with black the primary colour).  They can be so atmospheric, as can monochrome photographs.

Here is a colour photograph I took recently and then used Paintshop Pro 7 to convert it to greyscale (as close to monochrome as possible.

There is a gothic feel about the monochrome photograph, especially with the monuments of the Glasgow Necropolis plainly visible in the distance.  This will make a good backdrop for my Mr Frankfield stories, which will be posted at a much later date.
