***Mini Challenge 320 - "B&W at its best"***
Mar 11, 2012

At first, thanks to Nectar D Or for hosting the previous Challenge and selecting my shot as the winning one!

I was figuring out what I would like to see, and since I'm a huge fan of B&W / Monochrome I thought that it has been a long time since we had a Challenge for strictly these images.

So this weeks MC will be "B&W at its best" . Let us have a look at something that you feel is on its best in B&W. Only monochrome shots are allowed, let that be Sepia tone, Selenium, B&W... Subject is free, so let your imagination fly. I would also prefer to see some shots that have been involved in the previous challenges lately, although it's not forbidden if you feel that you want to share them rather than something else.

Let the Challenge begin!

The Challenge will close next Sunday, March 18th at 16 PM Central European Time, (CET).

Standard Rules:

The host gives you a topic of interest. You post a maximum of three images. Any picture you've taken is eligible regardless of time taken and camera.

You can do all the post processing you want. However, it is most helpful if you list your camera and lens along with your photo (because we like to know).

Feel free to comment on other contestant’s images. If you want people to give you constructive criticism, ask for C&C.

The host chooses the winner. The host's decision is final. The host is not eligible.

The winner then hosts the next challenge, judges the winner, and passes on the baton to that person. The winner has 48 hours to post the new challenge. If that doesn't happen 2nd place has 24 hours to do so, and if that doesn't happen it's up to the 3rd place winner.
Posting Guidelines:

When posting your picture, change the Subject of your post to display your picture titles. This way, when someone comments (i.e. replies), it will refer specifically to you. If all entries read "Re: * Mini- Challenge xxx * …" it would be very boring to scan the list.

Either embed your image in the thread or, if you must, supply a link to it. Keep in mind, however, most people don't want to click to open photos hosted elsewhere (i.e. on your website).

You may enter up to 3 pictures, but try to put them within a single post. Please give a title to each photo, this makes it easier to differentiate when giving comments.

Please size your photo no bigger than around 1200 pixels on the longest dimension. This is to let those with smaller monitors to see your image at full resolution. Please limit the file size of your entries to conserve bandwidth.

As a show of courtesy, and to save bandwidth, please remove the original post when replying, so you don't bring back any previous photos.
