Let's see some black and white/monochrome pics. Subjects that feature interesting textures, lighting and strong composition work well with the inherent abstraction of black and white photography. Have fun with this one and channel your inner black & white photog :)

Entries should be submitted by midnight of October 28 Eastern US Time to be considered - you've been warned lol

Standard rules apply.

Follow all relevant local laws regarding stay-at-home orders. If you can't go outside, try and take a photo at home or grab one from the archives.
  • Do not comment, vote, react or click “like” on images prior to the winners being announced.
  • The photographs must be your own work.
  • You may only submit one photo per contest.
  • This contest runs for one week. If in doubt, check the dates in the title.
  • At the end of the week, The Judge will choose a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place photo, providing as much feedback as possible.
  • If the Judge is unable to complete the selection within 48 hours of the deadline, then last week's 2nd place has to step in. 3rd place takes over should 2nd place be similarly unable to officiate.
  • The 1st place Winner will start a new thread with the topic/theme of their choice, and act as the Judge for that contest. (Winner has 48 hours to create a new theme, after that it defers to 2nd place).
  • Be sure to update the Contest Master List as soon as you post a new theme.

I'll start! I am a color photographer 99.7% of the time. And since we are pretty much in peak autumn colors here this week, I'm not shooting new for a black and white photo! 😂 So to the archive it is.

Some great entries so far. Will toss in the very first 4x5 image I ever shot. Probably summer 1975. Lunch Creek near Logan's Pass, Glacier Park, MT

Was using a borrowed Graflex field Camera with a 127mm Kodak Extanar lens. Slow shutter speed @ ƒ-22 or ƒ-32. Ilford FP4 film not sure of the developer, probably D-23 with a Sodium carbonate second bath. Scan will still enlarge nicely to 20x24
