>Are there some subjects which lend themselves better to b&w
than to color?

The easy answer, for me, is "well, that depends."  ;)

But some of the most memorable b&w pictures I have seen have involved
architecture, particularly when the composition is about texture,
shape, and light/shadow, all of which are captured well and without
distraction in b&w images.  (Even Ansel Adams's great b&w landscapes
frequently have an "architectural" character, I think.)  I also like
close-up portraits in b&w: there's something about the formality of
it that, for me, can make the shot really striking.

I love b&w photography as a consumer, but I've never been too
successful at it, other than for portraits.  A couple of months ago I
posted an architectural interior in here that started out in color
but looked even better to me when I took the color out of it.
