I agree that sometimes mono is far and away the best medium to use when taking some images. Absolutely no argument.
Having said that, I believe that mono seems to be the new HDR of the moment. Anything captured MUST be converted to mono. Every picture put up seems to attract the comment "Would look great in mono".
Is it only me that thinks that a shot should be approached with a view to mono and not "rescued by converting it" ?
