A Pair of Black & Whites

No, not two cop cars, photos. It probably seems strange to convert a colorful autumn photo to B&W but sometimes a composition just works well or better in B&W. A friend suggested the one above. I had already thought about it and done a quick conversion using a Lightroom preset but this evening, after his prodding, I tinkered with it some more.

The one I immediately thought should be B&W when I imported the image from the camera is the one below. The color wasn't much of a factor anyway and I really liked the graphic elements which stand out better in B&W. My photographic roots are in B&W and every so often I revert to old habits.
