    Welcome!

    There have always been subjects that do much better in black and white than in color. Images in black and white are often simpler in design and more focused on the essence, without too much distraction. The interaction between lines and surfaces or contrasts between light and dark can be beautiful and appeal to the viewer much more than with color work. This challenge is all about learning to "see, think and design" in black and white and not just converting color photos...

    About this theme: take your camera and a (super) wide-angle lens for this challenge.
    Place your camera about 1 to 10 inches above the ground. Look for special locations, for example train stations, statues, office buildings, shopping malls and antique markets in order to achieve a panoramic view, use your imagination and make creative use of depth of field and shutter speed, possibly in combination with ND or pola filters.


    The Black&White Challenge is a fun thing, no competition, no prizes, but hopefully a lot of learning, experimenting and also experiencing how others approach a theme. Every digital photographer and film photographer can participate with as many photos as desired during each challenge. Please, new photos only for this challenge! With every challenge it's stated what the first, subsequent theme will be, so, ultimately digital and film photographers can work on themes a few weeks in advance, if they wish.

    *******************
    The theme for the next challenge is "Double Exposure" and please, don't start uploading images for this challenge yet, but wait until a new thread is opened for this theme on February, 2.
