ongoing: Who needs colours?

This is an ongoing gallery of images that I think come out well after black and white conversion. Some of these were envisioned as monochrome while taking the pictures, but to be honest in the majority of cases I realised the potential only during post processing. I always use the channel mixer in Photoshop to decide how individual colours should translate into grey tones. I find that a difficult and delicate process and of course it is my personal interpretation. Have a look and let me know what you think.
