Flickr Friday - Black and White

      I love good Black and White photos but there is so much more to a truly great B/W portrait than just hitting the "Desaturate" button! Beyond the obvious subject matter, orientation, and general composition, a good B/W has great contrasts, range, and lighting along with a host of other complexities.
     Here are a few of my favorite Black and White from other artists on Flickr; each one exemplifying excellent artistic quality.
