Default Can't render?

Hello people,

I produced a few quick renders this afternoon, and I must have hit a random key or changed some settings, because I can't render anymore... The images come out in black and white only, like an alpha channel. Now, maybe this is a silly question, but I'd like to know how to fix it.

Thanks!

In the render view, look at the two icons next to the 1:1. One displays the alpha channel, the other displays RGB. You may have accidentally hit the alpha button (the one with the white circle in the black square); hit the other one (with the rgb colors) and your renders should be normal again.
