    As I was combing through my images to select 5 to post in the "Top 5 favorite images of 2017" thread, I realized that some of the images I liked the most were in black and white. I started processing images in B&W again earlier this year after having stopped with B&W film about 10 years ago. So in the spirit of the other Top 5 threads, I thought I would create one where people could share their favorite B&W images from last year.

    I'll start with mine which I really like:

  3. I could post in another 20 or 30 Best of 2017 and still not run out of photos.

    Ok here are my five for 2017. Was much harder to pick five from my black and whites than it was from the color.

    Most images are taken with the Pen F in monochrome mode. The Oly 45mm f1.8 image is converted from color.
