Q4 2023 Photo Challenge
The member’s Quarterly Photo Challenge runs from October 1 to December 31, 2023.
The new Q4 2023 Member's Challenge topic is B&W / Monochrome. Monochrome tints like Sepia are acceptable; localized or selective color is not.
The subject can be anything you choose, eg landscapes, people, street, etc. Tones, lighting, and texture will all play roles.
All rules can be seen here. If you substitute a sky, rule 7 says you have to have taken a photo of that sky during the challenge time period.
The photos need to be taken between Oct 1 and Dec 31, 2023
Send me (Jimmsp AT outlook.com) up to 3 photos taken during the quarter.
Remember, any post processing is allowed. If you add elements from another photo (like sky replacement) those elements must have been photographed by you within the quarter.
So this is a great excuse to get out and shoot.
Have fun & stay safe,
Topics for the next challenges are also listed here. Submit all photos to jimmsp AT outlook.com
