    mon·o·chrome/ˈmänəˌkrōm/
    Noun: A photograph or picture developed or executed in black and white or in varying tones of only one color. :biggrin:

    The official closing date is May 25th.

    Shots can be from your portfolio or taken specifically for the competition.

    Now for the Rules:

    1. Either take a picture that matches the nominated theme or select one from your portfolio. You must be the photographer that created the picture in order to enter it.

    2. Shots can be uploaded from any gallery, Mu43 or whatever is your preference.

    3. To enter your photo after uploading, copy the code in the Linked Image box and paste it into a reply to to this message. You can use the Quick Reply box at the bottom of this page.

    4. Only one entry per salon, please. If you want to withdraw an entry and replace it with another, that is OK, but you must make it clear in the post containing your replacement picture that this is what you intend doing.

    5. The decision of the curator at the end of the challenge is final - don't give him a hard time about it: this is just a friendly photo challenge, after all!

    6. The person who submitted the chosen picture will assume the responsibility of curator and as soon as possible post a message in a new thread in the Mu-43 Contests and Challenges forum, with details of the new theme. That opening message must include a copy of these instructions, which also double as the rules.

    7. The curator can't enter his or her own salon.

    8. Please, don´t be shy...Participate and have fun.

    9. Each salon should be open for about two weeks.

    Good luck!

    I'm sorry I cannot join, I just don't have an M-monochrom at hand.

    An old photo I took in a Rock-Blues concert. Always loved it, was in the front page of my website for a year.

    Black and white - a set on Flickr

    I agree with Kevinparis : I do a lot of b&w, and choosing one among all is disheartening.

    Cheers,

    I wish I were good at these types of classic images. I can't compete, but I'll submit this crappy snappy because it reminds me of a great day spent at the ballpark with my best friend and wife (the same person).
