You left the 'Let's have a look at the people around us,' in the brief. Are you specifically looking for people shots?
Or is it a slight oversight?

I love monochrome, so I hope I can shoot something/someone while on my break.

Now that suits me. I can play some more with my Topaz Black and White Effects. And get Aftershot Pro properly installed on my new machine, which I have finally got running after having to wait a week for a 99p connector to arrive

Sorry Reinardina - sloppy cut and pasting  :-[ When you look at the entry thread title I am sorry to have to tell you that you only have until the 26th and not the 626th May either - oops! :uglystupid2:

Really anything goes - people, buildings , animals - just something great in mono.

Does anyone know who wrote the original text for the competition?

It has done good service! Copied, pasted and edited over and over again.

I've got all three in several shots. My dilemma, for a change, is which one to choose.

With a busy weekend coming up I thought I'd best get in early.  Some Bluebells taken in the garden before the wind and rain arrived  :(

Still in Winchester at the moment, but going home tomorrow, I thought I'd better make up my mind which one to enter, and decided on this one. Still haven't properly looked at all of them, let alone edited them.

Glad you entered. It's a beautiful shot and you shouldn't really have to be reminded of the competition!!
Say hello to Tammy for me and enjoy the rest of the weekend.
