Photo Challenge: Black and White

Theme: Black and White

There's more to black and white photography than its ability to evoke your senses by awakening your memories. A black and white photo is simply a classic way of freezing a moment free of any external fctors which otherwise may distract your viewer. Lets use the simpler colours to focus on our subjects! Enter our 'Black and White' Photo Challenge for a chance to be our next winner.

Judge’s Feedback:

"An ideal black and white captures the moment in such a way that the particular moment becomes free of the boundaries of time, space and place. The shot captures the intensity of such emotion that it successfully manages to do all of these. The only factor that matters in this moment is a girl lost in thoughts by herself!" - Rumaisa

"This photo has a lot of meaning. It reminds us how precious we are to our parents, that they are always there ready to support us whatever the journey we might take in future. I do love that the treatment of contrast, toning and the eye contact of the baby gives an additional impact to this photo. All in all, it was great, good job and thank you for sharing this inspiring photo of yours!"- Mang
