Black and White (Two Photographs)

I am enjoying taking my photography into black and white with Macphun’s Tonality Pro. It provides for much greater latitude than the other programs I have tried (it uses layers like Photoshop does). I was mentioning my interest in black and white in a conversation with a friend and the question arose as to what animals are suited for black and white treatment. My response was to note that many animals are essentially monochromatic, and lend themselves to black and white. In the early days color photography was impossible or a luxury, and a considerable amount of historic and famous nature photographs were in black and white. As the damselflies age their color bleeds away, far be it from me to highlight their aging; I was far more interested in the shadows the light cast.
