Black and White Photography Contest

 Welcome to the black and white photography contest of the Photo forum although it's taken a little longer than it should, it's finally here. There will be another contest starting shortly after. The title is pretty self explanatory: you may submit anything that is black and white.
The rules
1) You must follow the uploading art rules
2) It must be black and white
3) Computer manipulation is allowed but please don't over do it. We like to see what you can do, not what your computer can do.
4) Your picture can be converted to grayscale, it doesn't have to start out with black and white film
5) Only one submission per person please

???? and i don't really know how you guys want to make the glamor contest

2006-09-25 [Janouk]: I'll put it on Mainstreet. I haven't really got time for the glamor one right now, but maybe tomorrow?
(I think I need a deadline to put it on mainstreet though)

2006-09-25 [maluna]: ummmm lets give it mounth a mounth that should be pleanty of time to get there pics in are we alound to submit too. and the glamor thing ill try to do ill need to refresh my memorie on the guildlines of glamor photography thoe

2006-09-25 [Janouk]: I'd like to submit as well, but we could have as a rule that we cannot win. I don't know...It is a poll that decides who wins, so in theory we should be able to join as well.
Edit: I'll take October 31 for a deadline.

2006-09-25 [Fire Panther]: I am SO All over this! Just gotta pick out the right one :)

2006-09-25 [maluna]: i think we should be alowed just like every one else

2006-09-25 [Janouk]: Good [Fire Panther]! Picking one is the hardest part, good luck!

2006-09-25 [maluna]: good luck i have sooo many good ones but i have no way to get them on the computer one of the many difficulties of using film

2006-09-26 [Blaithin]: Bah only one entry. I'm never gonna be able to pick heh

2006-09-26 [Blaithin]: Entry subject to change depending on my mood and pic I like at the time :P

2006-09-26 [iippo]: I agree Maluna & Janouk, you should also be allowed to enter. In a way it's the whole forum that makes the contest, and you are part of the forum too... :)
Did anyone edit the positions after the last contest?

2006-09-26 [maluna]: no one did edit them yet im still kind of confused on the matter i will try to figure it out. :)

2006-09-27 [Janouk]: I did not do that yet, [iippo], thanks for reminding us! I think we'll discuss wether or not we are going to keep that system. // Yay, I spy with my little eye some B&W entries! :)

2006-09-27 [maluna]: they are all so good.!!!!

2006-09-30 [CrimsonDarkness]: Awwww. It's my Jenna Jane. I love my scruffy little girl!

2006-09-30 [Linderel]: Hums.

2006-09-30 [CrimsonDarkness]: wow that's pretty. Looks like the country side in Ireland or somthng.

2006-09-30 [Linderel]: It's from Edinburgh Castle. :)

2006-09-30 [shotokan_gal]: decisions decisions...

2006-09-30 [CrimsonDarkness]: Lol. Yeah I had that problem too. I sat down and flipped through my photo album a few times.

2006-09-30 [shotokan_gal]: Indeed X)

2006-10-01 [Linderel]: The gargoyle picture is awesome. :O

2006-10-01 [CrimsonDarkness]: I agree. I think they are all very good pictures. It's gonna be a tough contest.

2006-10-02 [Iseld]: oh thanks :) where did you take yours at [Linderel]?

2006-10-02 [Linderel]: *points a couple of comments up* Edinburgh Castle.

2006-10-02 [Iseld]: oh lol, sorry... sometimes i get to lazy to look back and read *slaps forehead*

2006-10-02 [iippo]: Hmm, I really like the positions-system. *hopes it'll stay*

2006-10-02 [Janouk]: I hope though that it won't cause people to get annoyed, because they joined the system later on. It might be hard to catch up...

2006-10-02 [Linderel]: Positions system?

2006-10-02 [iippo]: Photo Forum Positions.
Maybe there could be other things than the contest that help you gain a position, so doing extra in the forum will help raise in the positions...?
I just find it really unique, no other wiki I'm in has a position-system, I think it's excellent.

2006-10-02 [Janouk]: There is a system in which you can earn points with each contest of the photo forum that you enter. Winning gives you, I believe it was, three points, etc. I haven't added the latest scores yet though, but I'll think we'll carry on with the system.

2006-10-02 [Linderel]: Aha. *is enlightened* By the way, is there an actual forum, or is it just the wiki? :P

2006-10-02 [Janouk]: [barutha] started the wiki as a 'forum', I don't know if he even knew that forums existed in Elftown. There is a 'crew-forum', but that's it. I think too little people would use a forum, because they don't know how to use it. I started a forum for a +100 community and no one's talking :o

2006-10-02 [Blaithin]: I didn't know it was a wiki and was always looking for a forum. I finally found the link though. Too bad I never thought to wiki search XD

2006-10-02 [maluna]: lol the whole positions thing confuses me that why i guess it's good to work with other people.
so how dose every one like the new contest btw glamor's now open we are still waiting for a artistic nudity banner thoe

2006-10-02 [~Lady Morgana~]: Hey [Modern Mo], I also thumbnailed yours, I hope that's okay ^^

2006-10-02 [Modern Mo]: no worries. that's fine with me.

2006-10-03 [~Lady Morgana~]: Okies ^^

2006-10-05 [sequeena_rae]: We are allowed to change out photo aren't we? =/

2006-10-05 [Thain]: yeah, but [Iske], you're only allowed to have one entry (unless someone loaded an entry and forgot to put their name on it)

2006-10-05 [sequeena_rae]: Ah okay ^_^

2006-10-10 [~Lady Morgana~]: ooooh so many pretty pictures! :D

2006-10-10 [maluna]: i know i dont have any that could even compeate i need to go on a photoshoot

2006-10-13 [trinityfairy]: ^.^ they're all so beautiful <3

2006-10-16 [moonscale]: Yes they are, but I think the omposition of a few would actualy bebetter if they were in color. The fallen scarf for example. I'm sure it had some beautiful vibrant colors originally.

2006-10-16 [~Lady Morgana~]: Hmm maybe yes.

2006-10-16 [trinityfairy]: I agree 100%

2006-10-16 [maluna]: I think that something would look better in color and some just beg to be made in to black and my picture lost childhood (not on here) but i knew when i took it i was going to turn it into balck and white.

2006-10-16 [hannes]: yes, in some cases b/w is just right.. but not in all cases, it isn't the magical way of making anything look classical.

2006-10-17 [Thain]: I like the scarf picture a lot, and the bridge

2006-10-17 [Seamus Schwathe]: Yes, but it is a good way to bring attention to shapes and shadows.

Argh... indecision.... >.<

2006-10-17 [~Lady Morgana~]: I hardly ever take black and white photos, portraits sometimes but I think the light has to be somewhat special to make a photo look interesting.

2006-10-17 [Sherya]: [moonscale] You are correct, but I paniced >_> I hardly take any B&W photos, I could have done better. Maybe I'll change the photo...

2006-10-18 [moonscale]: Its a great photo though, do you have it somewhere in color?

2006-10-18 [Sherya]: Yes, I do.

2006-10-19 [sequeena_rae]: Eeee [Cassave] your picture is awesome!

2006-10-19 [Cassave]: Thanks [sequeena_rae], though Lenni is a very cooperative model 8)

2006-10-19 [sequeena_rae]: I love it when they're like that <3

2006-10-23 [maluna]: thats sucks i would kill if someone stoll my camera i would kill lol just kidding :) it was my moms last gift to me so i would be really mad.

Trouble is I have so many good negatives I've never printed.

2006-10-26 [Beautyeverywhere]: i got my 35 mm slr at a garage sale for 15 dollars with 5 extra lens and a flash attachment. I'm going to upload a pic tomarrow

2006-10-27 [Seamus Schwathe]: God you were lucky.

2006-10-27 [Janouk]: I'm so impressed by the overall quality of the photographs, like 0___O wow!

2006-11-02 [moira hawthorne]: oooooooooooooooooooo thats impossible.. wow there so many lovely ones!

2006-11-03 [maluna]: our new contest is up halloween/fall contest

2006-11-05 [trinityfairy]: when is voting scheduled?

2006-11-06 [Janouk]: Do you mean when you can vote? 'Cause you can vote now: B&W-Poll

2006-12-15 [Janouk]: Please note: The five photographs that received the most votes have been selected in a new poll. Please vote for your favourite out of these five. Thank you! --> B&W-Poll

2007-01-11 [Fire Panther]: Congrats, winners!

2007-02-13 [Iseld]: i KNEW it looked familiar

2007-02-13 [Linderel]: That's... fairly scandalous.

2007-02-13 [Elmiira]: it is.. :S should you remove that entry and redo the poll to see the real winner?

2007-02-13 [Faery]: Well, since she won first place, I think there should be a new voting... Otherwise it really doesn't make sense...

2007-02-13 [Elmiira]: yeah.. and because most people gave their votes to that false photo, they should be allowed to give their votes again. It wouldn't matter so much if it had not win the competition.. But now it would be really unfair to everyone else. So a new voting would be the best option on my opinion..

2007-02-13 [Faery]: Has action been taken against [*micky*]? For violating the UAR?

2007-02-13 [sequeena_rae]: Humph.

2007-02-13 [maluna]: um im sorry i havent been on in a wile and and i havent seen this yea action will be taken, let me talk to the other host and see what they think but there will probley be a revote because it wouldnt be fair other wise

2007-02-13 [sequeena_rae]: Well done on finding it btw [Keii] :P

2007-02-13 [maluna]: yes thank you for finding it, this will be delt with its extremley important if anyone know of false picture to let us know

2007-02-15 [*micky*]: Hey guys I just wanted to say I'm sorry.....I already told [maluna] what happend....And I'm really sorry so good luck to you all since you all have a chance to winn again<img:44166_1164145221.gif>
