More adventures in black and white

Every now and then I get in the mood to try some photos in black and white. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn't. Here are four.

First, the mv. Mountain State.

Here's Adam on the tow knee of the mv. Hoosier State.

Here's the mv. West Virginia.

And here are two Crounse boats waiting in queue below the Robert C. Byrd Locks and Dam.

I think the first photo works best, the second and third are okay and the fourth falls short. Others may disagree, but that's how I see it at the moment.

I'm starting to think that black and white works best for boats with a front three-quarters view, and it's more of a problem with rear three-quarters views. I'll work on it some more and give it some thought.
