Photoshop actually makes black-and-white more appealing, since I can 
apply whatever colors I want, wherever I want, instead of putting up 
with the unpredictable, boring cacaphony of 'real' colors. I started 
out tinting and toning, and, after I finally discarded the jejeune 
pretense of fidelity, have lived happily ever after, on the outskirts 
of photorealism.

I also believe that my E.I. 400 BW film is less grainy than E.I. 400 
color film -- and I'd rather have sharp BW than grainy color. 
Especially when I can put my own colors in anyway.
