>>> Challenge 179 - Square Black & White <<<

Square Black & White

Preferably shot from the hip (or from waist height) like its taken with a Rolleiflex, and possibly a street shot, but any Black & White cropped square will do. Most important part is , HAVE FUN!

The idea is for it to be kind of a tribute to Vivian Maier. I have been intrigued by her photos and story, so much so that i spent quite some time trying to get my hands on a copy of the "Vivian Maier, Street Shooter" and i ended up getting a German one. ( It's in the mail).

Look here: http://vivianmaier.blogspot.com/ for the story and samples of her work.

We have had Square before, but not b&w. That time we agreed to max 750 by 750 pixels, so the same goes here.

The competition runs from now March 1st until 2100 GMT on Monday, March 12th. At that time the galleries will be closed and the voting will commence with a new thread. The winner in the competition gallery will host the next challenge.

Newcomers are totally welcome and encouraged to join the fun - Just post here if you need assistance to get images into the gallery or if you are not certain what's going on. We all started off clueless and make the same mistakes.

To post a photo in any of the galleries; just select the gallery of choice from below: Competition or Exhibition or Originals. On the top of the page you will see "edit this gallery", click on that and it will ask for a password. Enter "kickass" (don't ask, just keep it lower case) and you should be able to make it from there. If you still need assistance, ask and you shall be answered. Sometimes the answer is even the right one!

Add your name after the title (makes voting easier). (To make image sizes manageable, we need to max out at 750 pixels square, which is still more pixels than the usual 800x600.) And make sure the size is still max 200k. Pbase lets us run these challenges free on their website, so please respect this by keeping your file size reasonable. Ensure the EXIF data is intact for the competition, with the date it was taken.
