Each week this blog will publish on Friday at 6pm Irish time. Mister Linky will remain open until 8am on Monday.

PLEASE LINK DIRECTLY to your monochrome post. If your link leads to your home page it makes it very difficult for anyone trying to visit after a few days.

PLEASE don't hide your photo(s) in a whole string of entries for other memes - it's hard for all concerned.

PLEASE post ONLY BLACK AND WHITE photos - no patches of colour and no sepia or other colour treatments however good they may look. A black and white photo with added colour will lead to REMOVAL OF THE LINK. This challenge is ONLY for black and white photographs.

Friday, 16th September, 2011.

I want to thank Dragonstar for the chance to be her stand-in this week.
It was interesting and fun to be allowed to choose the pictures that became my favourites this time.
My choice is based on my opinion about the best botanical images, most unique portrait, best abstract image, image with the best reflection and image telling the strongest story.
Finally I want to give an honorary award to the creator of this wonderful blog, Dragonstar, because she deserves it.
Applause to all contributors, unfortunately could not all be mentioned.

My choice is number 9, Elisabeth (The Last Blooms of Summer); number 60, E:thos (Rutendo DeNise); number 14, David (Abstraction); number 4, Carpe Diem (Touch); number 42, Lachezar (Old Woman and Fire Wood). Finally number 3, Dragonstar (Snails).

I'd like to thank Tommy very much for making the selection this week. I'm sure you'll agree he's done a wonderful job.
I'd also like to thank him for including my photo, and his kind words. I love this challenge, and seeing all your photos each week.
Thank you Tommy!

As usual, you can click on the photos or the names above to visit the original posts. It's always well worth seeing the original photos full-size.

Amazing images. I am just beginning to explore monochrome photography, and the entries here are such an inspiration.

David said...

Thanks so much for including 'Abstraction'. I almost didn't enter that photo, but I am learning to take more risks and to try out new ideas. I always get nervous when I post. This is such a great group for new photographers like myself. :-) David Houston B&W
