Keeping up Contrast

Look for High Contrast — this white building would look washed out and unappealing in color.   In black and white the image has considerably more impact owing to the extreme difference in contrast between the left hand and right hand sides of the photograph.  The eye is also pulled towards the cross in the distance by the lines of the building which are accentuated by the monochromatic effect.
