Voxsplaining Black and White Photography

Photographic art most often makes vivid use of color, especially in large, sweeping landscapes or still life work.  But in modern boudoir photography, artists still make heavy use of black and white images.  This is partially in order to evoke film noir atmospherics, but it also can make the images crisper, bringing out details that are not obvious in the full color image.  Consider this image, first in color, then in black in white.
