Behind Lens - Choosing black and white

A few area photographers exhibit some of their favorite black-and-white images.

I made the photograph below using an iPhone 4 and edited using the iPhone app "Photogene." The photo was originally in color but I de-saturated to grayscale and enhanced contrast to make the photo B/W..I chose to eliminate color from the photo to emphasize the geometry and grain of the wooden fence and barn. Both are historical artifacts and the monochromatic black and white seems to emphasize timelessness and eternity to me.
