I Heart Faces - B&W Dramatic

This week is a great theme – you can go so many places with Black and White editing, but they all have to start with a memorable shot, right?

Check out the terrific entries this week!

This weeks’ theme description:

We are looking for B&W photos that are dramatic, sensational and/or moody in the way they are presented. Please don't just enter a typical portrait photo that has been converted to B&W. Something about your entry must catch our eye as being dramatic or moody for it to be passed along to the Guest Photographer Judge as a top entry for them to choose from.

At least one person must be in your photo. For this week only, as long as we can tell that there is a person in your photo you will be good to go (a face doesn't have to be clearly showing...but if it is, that's fine as well.)

And while I was there checking out some amazing entries, I realized that OHMYWORD, Amy and Angie have over 600 entries to go through already!

If only you could see the entire series… it was a dark and stormy night day and the sky was filled with swirling clouds.

First he stood still and waited for the water to settle around his boots.  He intently stared at the boy in the puddle.

Then he carefully lifted a foot to see his reflection ripple.



Yeah… and then he remembered he is three-years old and the rules state that one must stomp and splash the everliving raindrops out of any puddle… including his reflective buddy.

We played until the light began to disappear and the raindrops returned.

I hope he remembers this.
