Having spent a bit of time 'thinking' (bad idea, really, never does anybody any goodWink) I came across a comment that B&W photography was about 'tone and contrast.' Fair enough, contrast seems like a good subject - as related to how the image is presented, what's in it and so on - in other words, it's the subject to be interpreted how you wish. Probably expressed that badly, but I'm sure you get my drift...

1. The challenge is just for fun.
2. All images must be taken after the theme is announced.
3. All images must be uploaded by 8pm on Wednesday
4. All uploads must be B&W (or sepia toned)
5. Only one upload per member
6. The person who hosts is the judge for that week 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
9. Selfies are allowed - well, this was in the rules I copied, so who am I to get rid of it?

I'm in. Decided to go with a technical take on the theme this week. Not entirely sure about it but it was good to give it a go again - haven't done anything like it in quite a while. Smile

Good to see some entries alreadyGrin
Now that the Macro Challenge has been sorted for this week, for the rest of you it's time to get those B&W photos done and dusted (oh, dust! That was / is a problem on the B&W negs, well and the colour ones too....)
In other word(s) - BUMP!

I shall have an entry soon. I did try tonight but the light outside was going while I was waiting for a prescription in the chemist.

I will try again tomorrow and also have a go at another idea.

Hi - another reminder. I haven't looked yet - I'd prefer to see all entries at once, but I'm sure there are some good-uns there already!

Great set of entries, plenty of variation and contrast in there! Not an easy choice - lingered over them, but in the end I do have a clear favourite and that is 'Contra Jour' by Slowsong alias Chris.
So over to you Chris for next-weeks challenge, you lucky girlGrin

Oooh, quite a while since I've won a challenge. Thanks for the honour, Pete. What with that and having to go to the vet again, it's turning out to be a good day. Grin
