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

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

2006-10-20 [maluna]: ok i have one up not my best but it's up it may change i have beat this picture to death and back i really need to get some curent work up on my computer

2006-10-22 [Yuichi♥]: i was bored at school and i took a pic of a friend.. it came out like that and i liked it..Not that good though.. and.. Unfortunatly someone the next day stole my camera .. now im searching for it.. **Sighs** .. i cant get a new one either..

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.

2006-10-23 [Yuichi♥]: I got mine from my dad and it was really expensive not a 10$ disposable it was around $300.. Im going to have to find a way to find it..

2006-10-23 [maluna]: mine was like $400 i think

2006-10-23 [Yuichi♥]: **sighs** i miss my camera..

2006-10-25 [Seamus Schwathe]: I got mine used... $230. But I love it so much!
