Black and white photography Today

Is it just me or has anyone else noticed that today’s black and white photos are not that great? I’m seeing a big difference from yesteryear’s b&w compared to today’s.

Such as current b&w’s taken with, I assume digital cameras, are not as clear, not clearly defined, muddled. The subject appears to blend in to the background.

I see all of the b&w photos on Google Plus fine art photography and what could have been a most beautiful pic is ruined.

If you’ve got the time, compare old b&w’s with today’s modern digital HD version and see if I’m not right.

Has anyone noticed this? Surely I’m not the only one?

Okay, now, compare the pic above to today’s and hopefully you’ll see what I mean.

This has been bugging me for quite a while and just had to say/write something about it. I hope I followed the proper procedures as far as copyright and such goes.

Thanks for your time and maybe I’ll hear back from someone?

I wish you a beautiful day!
