- Y.A.W.N - (Black and White Street photography + A Border) Take a Yawn-worthy outdoors dayshot of an urban surrounding, which appears literally and unmistakeably urban, with at least one adult human showing his/her face. No parks please. Think concrete jungle. There shall be no bodies of water in its liquid form larger than 100sq feet in the shot. There shall also be no visible children and minors in the shot unless they are less than 0.0001% of the photo area. Process the photo into BW format (preferably grey-scale) and add an elegant border. My keyword suggestions - #best-composed, #zerosnapshots, #pretty, #handsome, #un-old. PS: It is a street photography challenge with key human element(s). Please strike a balance when you are composing the shot.

Processing rules: Please restrain yourselves from going overboard with it.
Capture date rule: No restrictions
Additional rules: The total entry limit is now set at 60, I might slightly increase the limit if this challenge is well received. Do not submit shots used in previously completed DPReview.com challenges. No political statements please, any photos with the slightest hint of controversial statement or message will be removed without any notice. Shots I find offensive might be removed. Make sure the entries look good and tasteful (at least you must find your own shot tasteful). Complaints might not be entertained after the voting has ended. The host's action (or inaction) is up to him.
Where People Eat Let your picture tell a story about a place where people go to enjoy their meals. It could be a road-side coffee shop, a cafeteria or a restaurant; a burger joint or an ice-cream parlor; a food hawker or a street food stall. Anywhere, just not at home or private parties. Key words are STORY, PLACE, ATMOSPHERE, PEOPLE, MOOD. What is it that you want to convey to the viewer. Please do not submit some 'nice looking snap shots' without a message in mind.
