Continuing my exercise of exploring the capabilities and range of black-and-white by reprocessing a number of previously edited color images, here are some architecturals. These are all shot at the Getty Center in Los Angeles. The Getty Center has some very distinctive architectural elements which suit it perfectly to its hillside perch above Los Angeles.
The exceptional clarity, sharpness, and resolution of the Fuji X100 makes it well suited to this kind of photograph.
The Getty Center architecture does an interesting dance with light and shadow. I think the black-and-white brings this out more successfully than do color images. Similarly, the black-and-white highlights the strong geometric character of the Getty buildings.
