Weekly IL Black and White Challenge - ending 8pm Wed. 24th March 2021 - illusion


We all know the camera never lies so this week's challenge is to present something that fools the eye but has been taken as a single shot in-camera; no jiggery-pokery, trickery or similar post-processing other than usual development processing and cropping.

1. The challenge is just for fun.
2. YOUR IMAGE MUST BE TAKEN AFTER THE THEME IS ANNOUNCED.
3. The image must be uploaded in a comment in this thread by 8pm (UK time) on the following Wednesday.
4. Images must be B&W (or sepia toned).
5. Only one upload per member
6. The person who hosts is the judge for that week's challenge and the judge’s decision is final.
7. The winner gets to create, run and judge the challenge for the following week.
8. Have fun.
This example is one I took on the same walk that gave me my winning pattern shot (thanks Malc). To my simple mind the ships looked like models that someone had plonked on the pier. The pier legs are buckling under the weight. Sadly, it is gradually falling into the sea and the owners are planning to shorten it even further than nature already has.

Gravity has been playing tricks in my house this week.
Well, that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it. Blush

In line with the challenge constraints, this is a single image that has only had basic processing - no PS trickery required. 😊
A small nudge to those who have yet to capture the magic ... not long to go now Smile

I was really struggling with this one.... two failed attempts with a toy bat mobile in a car park. I did get a few odd looks though 🤣🤣🤣

However then taking a step back and playing with the Electronic Shutter and Mrs D little battery fan.

A fairly amateur effort from me this week (again!) as I had totally forgotten the challenge, being up to my eyeballs in decorating...
