Rethinking Black & White Images

While working in Lightroom 5 the other day, I came across some images from Colorado taken in July 2011, that while they were interesting, just didn’t grab me in color.  I have had an interest in understanding Black & White photography because of the opportunities it provides for mid-day shooting.  I took some of these images and processed them in Black & White in Lightroom 5 and Nik’s Silver Efex Pro 2.  Be curious to know what you think of these images.  Locations include the famous Yankee Boy Basin and county roads near Montrose and Rideway, Colorado.
