    Challenge 158 Black and White

    Challenge 158 Black & White

    The challenge this month is to produce a black and white image.

    This subject was last tackled as part of challenge 58 a good time ago and there have been some excellent black and white pictures posted in the forum recently so I thought it time it was revisited. To give the maximum scope for entries I am not restricting the choice of subject, that is entirely of your own choosing as long as the image is in black and white.

    For those new or shy on this forum, I would encourage you to enter. Hopefully in doing so you will challenge yourself and have a bit of fun at the same time.

    Judging will be based on :-

    * fulfilling the brief
    * a good photo based on composition, focus and consideration to the light.
    * Having impact. Will I remember your image after I go away from the computer?

    The usual rules apply:-

    • The competition subject shall be selected by the winner of the preceding competition who will also judge the competition.
    • One picture per person; images should conform to general image posting rules.
    • All entries to be shot with a Canon EOS camera i.e. SLR / DSLR / M & R series
    • Posted images should be taken during the running period of the competition. Any images submitted that were taken before the competition started, or after the competition has ended, will be deemed invalid.
    • Images 800 pixels widest maximum (to help those with small monitors).
    • No Photoshop frames and borders.
    • Include a title; the image must convey the theme without title description.
    • Please, NO comments on images- on this or another thread- until the round is over.
    • No canvassing e.g. “I’m thinking of posting this image for the challenge, what do you think?”
    • I will pick 1st, 2nd and 3rd favourite images (please don’t PM me to discuss my choices).

    Closing date for entries is midnight Saturday 30th November

    Best of luck
    Ian

      This may sound a bit silly but I was wondering about the brief - is a black & white photo a photo in shades of grey eg monochrome or just a two bit image like a silhouette? I expect the regulars know but us newbies are still a bit green.

      Cheers

        Mike,
        The definition of Black and White photography does include all shades of grey as well.

          Absolutely...anything without colour....
          Note monochrome can mean a single colour....i.e. just blue and all shades of blue....even very nearly white...that is a blue and white is monochrome

                As the forum has been unavailable for a while and most of the competition period was lost plus the fact we are now into the Christmas and New Year period, I propose to extend the end date to midnight Saturday 25 January. Good Luck
