Black & White Natural Photography
Challenge series hosted by RStyga. Challenges start on Saturdays.
The title of this series implies a more 'analog' approach to digital photography; that is, less post-processing, or post-processing that does not fundamentally alters the original photograph, one that keeps the photograph 'natural'.

Winners announced: 12th April, 2014 GMT
Winner: Ecclesgreig House
The theme is a predominantly-residential building (modern era, 1800s onwards). Practically speaking, it must be a residential house, a hotel/motel, an apartment building, barracks, or similar (occupied or abandoned). Therefore, churches, retail stores, ancient temples, medieval or older residences, stadiums, barns, radio towers, restaurants, shopping malls, music halls, or similar buildings...
Winners announced: 29th March, 2014 GMT
The theme is a very detailed shot of the moon, partial or full, in black & white (no colour). No other element at all in the frame, please.
Winners announced: 15th March, 2014 GMT
Winner: Ancient Bristlecone Pine
The theme is a black and white photograph (coloured photos converted to black and white are also accepted) of a single tree; any other elements present in the frame need to be extremely underwhelming.
Winners announced: 22nd February, 2014 GMT
Any photograph of a natural landscape in black and white (no colour) is invited for this challenge. Digital photos taken in colour and then converted to B/W are also accepted.
