The following pictures don't show any significant color differences - they're quite "monochromatic". The effect on us is often a bit weird because we don't have any anchors in the image where we could start to analyze it. However, just this "confusion" make monochromatic pictures so interesting because we need a 2nd thought to make sense of the situation.

In contrast to the previous picture the following one has a monochrome main subject - in the first moment we actually have to search the subject here. While the main subject is not obvious from the beginning monochrome pictures are often interesting because you have to spend an additional moment to make sense of the scene.
