Sure the images are monochromatic but as I edit them a snow storm is blowing outside. It seemed appropriate to not use color. It adds a sense of drama to the images.
On a technical note, the Sony RX100M3 files have a bad habit. I will do perspective adjustments in Lightroom and when I bring them into Photoshop my perspective adjustments are gone. While both programs are supposed to have Camera Raw support for the files I’m thinking its not so great. May have to suck it up and covert the files to DNG from now on if I know perspective is slightly off.
