Monochrom Oktober Day 31

Each year I dedicate the month of Oktober (German Spelling, in case you were wondering) to the beautiful art of Black & White photography. Each day I will be posting a new Black & white image
I have a passion for this style of photograph, as it makes you concentrate more on the subject and really brings out the emotion of the image.
In the post processing phase, it is more than just removing the colour out of a picture but finding the right combination of tones and shades of grey that work within an image. With applications such as Photoshop you can change these mixtures to a great degree to give you more or less of those tones.
You can experiment with your photos as I am sure that your smartphone will have an editing section in it (both the iPhone Camera App and the Facebook App do this) and play around with the different settings.

Share your images with everyone by posting them to my Facebook page, and please feel free to leave your comments below.

Don't forget that you can subscribe below to receive all the images from this months collection, plus a couple of bonus images, in high resolution.

Had this one as an extra shot for this month so I thoughtthat I would add it today seeing as it was the last day and all. Shot on the Fujifil X-E1 with post in Lightroom Classic.
