244th s&t competition: Beautifully simple in black and white

Post Thu Jul 26, 2012 11:46 pm


While desperately seeking inspiration for a contest theme, I realized it has been a while since we have done a monochrome/black-and-white based theme. I love black and white -- still my first love in photography -- so that seemed like a no-brainer. And I always admire people who manage to achieve "beautifully simple." Usually, there is a minimalist feel implied, but not always, so anything you think is beautifully simple in black and white is fair game.

I'm looking forward to having a very tough decision to pick the winner ;)

A few samples from my archives that in no way cover the gamut of "beautifully simple in black and white":







Submissions will be closed on Thursday the 2nd of August 2012 at 23:46:39 UTC

Posting Photos for a Contest
1. Photos must be hosted on pbase.com
2. Maximum of 3 photos per contest.
3. Photos must be embedded in your post. See the following link for how to do this http://forum.pbase.com/viewtopic.php?t=18022
4. Post only medium versions of your picture using the PB-Image button
5. The host is not eligible for their own contest.
6. Any picture you've taken is eligible, regardless of date taken and camera, as long as it hasn't already won another contest.
7. You can do all the post processing you want.

Winning and Running a Contest
1. If you enter the Show and Tell Contest, please note the closing date and be sure to check back to see if you won.
2. If you win the Show and Tell Contest and cannot run the next one, please notify the person running the contest immediately, so they can notify the second place winner.
3. If you decide to run the next contest, please post the new contest within 24 hours.
4. When the contest ends, please post the winners within 24-48 hours. (If you keep an eye on entries during the week, you will have a good idea of your favorites by the time the contest ends, and be able to more quickly post your winners.)
5. If you know you will not be able to post a contest, judge it, and post winners, within these timeframes, please do not start one. Instead, notify the person running the contest, so they can pass it on to the second place winner.
6. Pick first, second, and third place winners. You may include up to 5 honorable mentions.
7. Include these rules in the body of your contest.
