Monochromatography: see the world in the shades of cold steel colour

A steel-blue monochromatic image. Island of Madeira, Portugal. 

A story behind: The image whose range of color consists of shades of a single color or hue can be called monochromatic.

With a B&W image we pay more attention to shapes, textures and patterns—features that are often enhanced by monotones and hidden in coluor image. We must be more aware of the lighting, composition and how the colors will convert to gray scale. Monochromatic also often means more artistic. This type of pictures tend to instantly catch the attention of every viewer.

A wide dynamic range of gray scale from rich blacks to glowing whites makes any time of day the perfect time to shoot.
