Photography like a life in black and white
Challenge series hosted by RazvanRO. Challenges start on Wednesdays.
Sometimes, if not all the times, one can reflect happiness, sadness, dreariness, grief, pride, glory, anxiousness, love, hate, tranquility, impatience, eagerness, greed, poverty, mercy, war, peace, pain, bravery, heroism, intelligence, accuracy, generosity, royalty, chaos, life and death (etc-etc) without colour's power. The power of black and white exposures is greater than what we can imagine. Prove this!

I missed one week of challenges for this series but I got this new challenge idea: provide an exposure (which follows the rules below) where you missed something or something is missing from somewhere. Be creative if you wish but provide comments if your exposure is "too abstract".
Winners announced: 29th December, 2010 GMT
Winner: We are free
Why should I give a challenge description? It will be against the challenge title... Try to capture this kind of feeling in your exposures. ( Mind the rules...! )

Open theme for this challenge (be sure your entry is complaint to dpreview general rules for nudity, etc-etc), but you should submit a b&w exposure that makes you proud of it (or at least pleased) after post processing. Something similar to this feeling: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u7u_y-__62w&feature=player_embedded ( Mind the rules below, thank you! )

You can literally use the challenge title or you can unleash your creativity! In case your shot is too abstract and is hard to find a connection between the challenge title and your exposure please provide additional comments. Comments must create the correlation between your final result and the challenge theme.
