Agh! Curse this Daylight Saving Time! I thought it was ten to seven, but it’s actually ten to eight!o_O This challenge is now CLOSED. It’s my task and pleasure this week to do the judging. Once I’ve recovered from the shock of losing an hour, I’ll be back with the results.:rolleyes:

At one point this week I thought we’d only have one page of images for me to judge, but, after my cri de coeur, you stepped up and posted more marvellous images, thank you. In fact, it was quite difficult to choose the winners in the end. The cityscapes this week were fabulous. I’m almost tempted to suggest a challenge just for them, but luckily I resisted. :lol:

In first place is lkbside Leslie with Civil War Encampment. If you want to see the perfect marriage of edit and subject, then this is it. If this had a hint of sepia to it, you’d swear that it was an old photo (but, of course, it wouldn’t have been in the Black and White Challenge:rolleyes:). Well done Leslie. By the way, what was that combo?

In second place is terse Ted and his Take Flight. Such a beautiful, artistic edit to this. Just lovely.

In third place is sinnerjohn John with that fabulous view Inside Manchester Art Gallery. I love how all of the lines intersect and make little pictures in their own right. Wonderful.

The Cute Award is shared this week between Starzee Star and RoseCat Catherine for their cows and ducklings - both adorable.

Thank you to everyone who posted and commented. Now that we’re getting to grips with the new, super-improved Mobitog, hopefully things will get back to normal (whatever that is!). Okay, me and the boys with the rifles are off to the Gallery. Please come and admire them here.

Thanks! But they are real! These guys come from all over every March to commemorate the Battle of Glorieta Pass, sometimes referred to as the Gettysburg of the West.

Well, thank you very much! The combo is Stavros, DType, some clarity and lightening of shadows. I took a lot of photos, but mainly with my camera so I could zoom without being in these guys faces. This is an iPhone shot.

My go to combo for the series was a colorized old timey look -Vicuña - CType - PopRox, but I did a BW edit for here.



Congrats terse and sinnerjohn !

I thought, at first glance, that these were real Leslie and I wondered how this Hipsta combo made them look like sculptures. But that nose is far too chiselled. Great find and edit.
Yep. Sculptures. I probably could rough them up with some texture and grain...
