I don't know, black and white just doesn't do it for me in this case - I feel like its slashed the beauty of the coast in half, if not more. I reckon black and white looks best on photos of people.

I hear you on that. I love b&w photographs but you're right, I think the beauty and scope of color throughout Cali is missing here.

I agree...I only like B&W photos for people shots...when it comes to scenic ones, I much prefer full color...

I like b&w scenic photos but only if the contrast is really, really good and still, I do find they often miss out b/c of the lack of color but it just depends on what's being photographed.

i agree that B&W photos are best on people but i do think you can have really good B&W scenic photos as long as you're a good photographer

Hm, I think it's nice. Sometimes there is too much colour, nothing is left to the imagination...the black and white makes you invent stuff.
