    Welcome!

    Many subjects attract much more in black and white than in color, images in black and white often are more focused on the essence, without too much distraction. The direct interaction between light/dark or lines/surfaces, can be beautiful and will appeal to the viewer much more than in color.

    The Black&White Challenge is a fun thing, no competition, no prizes, but all about learning to "see, think and create" in black and white, not just randomly converting color photos. Every digital photographer and film photographer can participate with as many photos as desired during each challenge. Please, new photos only for this challenge*)

    Theme #11: Don't think like a car = a car, that's too simple. Let's try something else, such as movement (panning your camera or zooming) or creative techniques as Dutch tilt, double exposure or combine positive/negative layers and filters during editing. Take detailed photos of spokes and wheels, headlights etc. Try to achieve a rich range of shades of gray.

    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 first edition of three special 2020 summer challenges is 'as much bokeh as possible in a photo' and please, don't start uploading images for this challenge yet, but wait until a new thread is opened for this theme on June, 7

    *******************
    *) only new photos taken from the date a theme is announcement may be used, also any creative photo-edits (in whatever form) may only be realized with photos that were taken from the date of a theme's announcement

    Well, it is summer up here in the Northern Hemisphere. Must the object have wheels? I had took a shot of a boat in motion on the river but it looks like that doesn't apply here. Oh well, mabe later in the summer.

    It is from a wheeled vehicle. I promise. Goofing around at lunch. And a bit of a self portrait.
