I find myself using the black and white profile on my XT3 more than the standard color profile. Looking for compositions in black and white is a nice change of pace and will often net you a photograph you wouldn't have considered otherwise. I especially like this approach with flowers. The simple color palettes often convert nicely to black and white. That was my approach with this photograph and I liked the results. The last bit of sun in the backyard was shining on just a few patches of flowers and black and white gave me that minimal image that I often look for.
