  1. This one has me considering bokeh. With blurred out color, you can get a really lush visual context working, but with b/w the shapes and lines in the background change the whole equation. It’s not even the same process, is it?

    • Saturation affects bokeh most in color. In black and white, playing with the sliders becomes a delicate balance. For example, in this image, the background is various shades of green. So playing with the green (and the yellow, too) slider tends to sharpen some of the shapes and the lines in an unflattering manner. Even though I play with the monochrome sliders to impact non-bokeh elements primarily, I have to keep on an eye on bokeh impacts much more in black and white.
