*** Mini-Challenge #728 *** "Black and White Art"

It is difficult to define "art". What I am looking for is a black and white image that you would proudly frame to display on the wall of the living room in your home. An image that would capture the interest of someone who is not a photographer and evoke his/her emotions.  By way of one example, this B&W image of "The Lecture" hangs on my living room wall.

This Challenge starts now and will close on Saturday, December 16 at 5:00 PM EST.

Please respect all of the normal DPReview rules regarding propriety and such.

You may post up to three images as Entries and up to seven Exhibits, so choose carefully.

Photos must have been taken by you and only you.  Any type of camera may be used - doesn't need to be only Sony equipment.  Any sort of processing, done by you and only you, is acceptable; but, if you are going to use AI, please indicate that in your comments. B&W includes sepia and any other traditional monochromatic processing.  Sad to have to say this, but apparently necessary - photos of photos taken by someone else are unacceptable.

Please state in the header whether the image is an Entry or Exhibit. Non-labelled examples will be assumed to be Exhibits. Please, consider submitting your images as Entries.

Post all images using the "Reply to Thread" button below this post.

Awards will be made on a purely arbitrary basis, based upon what images most appeal to me.   First, Second and Third places will be selected only from Entries.  Honorable (or "Honourable" for our friends across the pond  ) Mentions will be selected only from Exhibits. Coveted Dishonorable Mentions might be selected from either category.

The first place winner has the "privilege" of creating and hosting the next Challenge and has 3 days to begin it. The winner can respond with a forum post.  If the winner does not respond in 3 days, or declines to host, the second place winner becomes the next host. If the second place winner declines to host, the third place winner becomes the next host.

Best regards and good luck!
