    Rules (Copied from the first thread)

    #1 You may submit only one photo per contest.

    #2 The contest runs for exactly one week, from the time stamped on the first post in the thread (this will be made by the winner of the previous week's contest).

    #3 Please refrain from commenting on the photos submitted in the contest. I think that a good photograph is one that can appeal to someone who may not know much about the technical aspects of photography. I think it would be best if the judge isn't swayed by someone else's opinion of the photograph.

    The judge will decide his/her favorite at the end of the week, place a post listing it and a short synopsis of why he/she chose that photo. The winner is then responsible for starting a new thread containing a new contest and topic which again will run for exactly one week.

    This week's theme is Black and White

    Hard to pick a favorite in such a broad subject, but hell, here's one people seem to enjoy.

    No, it's not an HDR, just a massive curves manipulation, ie instead of linear it looks like a sine wave. This means that what was white is now black, and what was mid-gray is now white. Essentially a 'solarized' effect, but extended so it covers the full black-white gamut. Only works for a select few shots, but when it works, it works.
