I am not sure I follow you but my eyes don't see in black and white ;) Images in black and white are highly unreal to me, possibly more than the ones presented here initially but convention has told me that black and white images are real? I have stepped back and assessed what convention was telling me what is real and what is not and suddenly my eyes and mind really opened.

I forgot which famous photographer said: "All images are real, all images are fake"

When you take images in black and white Gnarly, composition is key. It removes all of the colour pizzazz and if it's a shit image, it will be obvious.
