You could say I am a B&W hater. Something that always bugs me is when people switch their photos to monochrome and call it professional. While monochrome can save some images with terrible white balance, it isn't a single defining thing to make a picture great.
I rarely use black and white, so this weekend I attemped to take some photos with monochrome in mind. It was a fun challenge, and I am happy with the result. B&W is growing on me, but I still love my color better. I am a colorful person.
