Ok, week 11 is a wrap. Lots of great takes on the week 11 theme! I'm so glad that you folks are taking part in this and making it what it is! I think we're all having fun with it, too.

Well, here we are at week 12. Doesn't seem like almost three months have gone by since we started this. I guess time really does fly when you're havin' fun, huh? :D

As always, if you're not familiar with the rules, please CLICK HERE and review them prior to submitting your photo to the challenge thread. Your cooperation in keeping with the guidelines and intent of the challenge will be greatly appreciated.

Also see THIS POST from week 11. Without the rules and some sort of enforcement this all becomes just another photo sharing thread. I love photo sharing as much as the next guy, but want to keep the focus here on getting out and shooting, which is the main purpose of the challenge anyway.

And with all that said... on with this week's challenge. The past few weeks have all been pretty similar so I thought I'd change it up a little. This week the theme isn't so much tied to the subject matter as it is the thought going into the shot. You can shoot any subject matter you want, within the limits of the rules and intent of the GON forums of course... but try to shoot something in...

BLACK & WHITE

... that looks good in black and white. To outline the intent of the theme I'll quote the person who submitted the idea via PM... SKEETER2.

Skeeter wrote:

The challenge would simply be B&W "Black and White" . Anyone can take a picture of something in B&W, but finding something that actually looks good in black and white is something different. That will challenge everyone to find that "one object" that just looks killer in B&W.
Thanks for the suggestion Skeeter! :cheers:

A suggestion for this theme... Study a B&W photo, or photos that appeal to you and really look at the tonal values of the subject and the surroundings. Then either find a shot, or set one up so that you use tonal values to make your subject or scene look as good as possible using tonal values and contrast.

If you've never shot or converted to B&W you may be surprised. Some photos that look awesome in color don't look so great in black and white.

And as always the theme is only a suggestion. Also, if anyone wants/needs help converting a color file to B&W please PM me. I don't want anyone left out due to not having the software or "know-how" to convert to B&W. I'll do what I can to help using what I know and have... Just don't want anyone left out.

Ok, get out those cameras and put your black & white eyes on!!! Week 12 is ON!!! :cool:

Those are some fine shots already folks. I hate I missed the Americana challenge for the past week, just had way too much on my plate, and working the long week didn't help either. Thanks BT for the entry.

I pass by this all the time, and thought it fit the challenge. You just don't see too many of these things anymore. I've tried to buy the whole sign with no luck :banginghe

Cool Shots, Y'all!!! I think my biggest problem this week is gonna be choosing which "one" I like the best. I've just been snapping away.

Well the Nikon won't do B&W so I used the Kodak Z812 and had been working on a couple of things but then






I took a drive and ended up over at Fort Spokane and found a couple of things to mush at :cool:

I am realy enjoy the shots this week. I love B&W shots and we have got some great ones so far.


Alright this one was tough, everything is so BLAH here. There isnt a lot of contrast and I was hoping for a cloudy day to eliminate some shadows but it doesnt look like this is going to happen. So this is what I came up with.
