    I was thinking that many photos taken for the documentary contest might be appropriate for this one as well :smile:.

    OK - I'll have a go - taken with my super-duper new E-P2 (but on my first morning out with it so be kind!) - using the Grainy Film Art Effect

    This is in the bathroom at a local restaurant. I'm wearing black and the walls are white. (And the photo is rendered in B&W.)

    Just has to be done

    It is great to see the difference in numbers of entrants for this competition at this stage compared to the last one and should serve as encouragement for all.

    Black and White has always held a special place in my heart as I like many others cut my teeth on it.

    So here is my entry that was taken on our trip to Brighton, it suits the theme as the boat is of the same era as the height of B&W.

    Does sepia count as black and white?

    Wow, Brian!

    This image makes me imagine a modern day King Arthur waiting for Excalibur to brought to him by The Lady of the Lake! And I mean that as a compliment. This photo has a lot of power and is beautifully rendered. Well done!:bravo-009::bravo-009:
