Weekly Challenge #595 - Lights and Shadows in b&w
Posted By: jchorst, 11-20-2022, 01:46 PM

Welcome to the new Weekly Challenge on PentaxForums. Hattifnatt doesn't seem to be able to host this, so I have the honour to take over as judge. Admittedly, my theme is not very original, but hopefully interesting enough to draw some great entries: Lights and Shadows in black and white - the more contrast, the better. Have at it!

The fine print:

Every week, a new theme is picked and judged by the winner of the previous week.

This challenge will run until November 27th, 2022, whatever time zone you're in.

1. Post ONE photo.
2. The photo must portray an interpretation of the theme.
3. Post your single picture in this thread and explain what motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly theme (especially if it's not obvious).
4. The challenge is interactive. Any response is welcome.
5. The judge will pick the WINNERS and choose one of them to be the judge for the next week.
6. This challenge runs for 7 days plus an additional day for the judge to choose the winners.
7. Any Pentax camera can be used.
8. Pictures can be from any time frame, not just within the week of the current theme.
9. In case the winner of a challenge is unable to become the judge for the next challenge, they will PM the #2 winner for that person to be the judge.

I took this several years ago and posted a similar one in Flickr that was in color.

I do not think you got yourself an easy judging at the end of this contest. It’s a good one though.
This one is an oldie, but I like the “dark” vibe it gives.

Photo of my cat when she was still mostly a kitten. Taken almost 12 years ago with my K10D. Sigma lens at 38mm . ISO 100 / 1/60th / F4 / Center Weighted. Converted to Black and White in Adobe Photoshop. Further processed in Topaz.

Taken back in 2013 while on a layover in LA (Long Beach) Aquarium of the Pacific. Late afternoon shadows caught my attention that day.
