This was a small pool of entries, so I've just discovered a small number doesn't make it any easier to narrow these down.

I'll go from third to first and then a few Honorable Mentions

Third place: TomHH with his beautiful room. Great depth. The chair backs in a row led me right into the back of the room to see that column and rise up to the ceiling lights. https://mobitog.com/attachments/img_20200106_074906-01-jpg.153843/

Second Place: Jilly G's Lilies ... The soft blurring of the lilies in the background really emphasized the texture and delicacy of the sharp lily. https://mobitog.com/attachments/2144d226-31fe-497b-815c-70065e3460e7-jpeg.153888/

First Place: Sinnerjohn and the mannequins. It just has incredible values and incredible clarity and the subject ... manniquins watching out the window like kittens in a pet food store. Who will take them home and feed them and brush them?

My HMs include
Rosecat's beautiful round photo with its delicate flat texture ... it seems like more than airplane guts! https://mobitog.com/attachments/ff03bca8-d08e-4dca-9ff6-47299e59b8db-png.153976/

Sdimbour ... the open door into the shop was so inviting, I wanted to have a seat and be part of the scene. https://mobitog.com/attachments/7eb30e1e-24dd-46d1-a894-09a1b310633c-jpeg.154025/

And done but not ended. a new challenge was already opened!

I had a lovely time visiting every photo. Happy to have found this group and see everything in all these challenges and especially here in the B&W.

Great job Carmel - a lovely piece of judging. :thumbs: Congratulations to @sinnerjohnJohn with that wonderful photo - well spotted John, and well taken. Thank you for my second place, and well done to TomHH Tom - your images are always inspiring. High fives to the HMs, RoseCat Catherine and sdimbour Sandra and big hugs to everyone who posted. I love seeing your images every week.:notworthy: Right, I’m now going to herd John’s trio onto the Mobitog catwalk and down to the Gallery. I expect it’ll take a few walks up and down, with some twirls, before we get there.:lol:

Thank you Carmel, most appreciated :notworthy: I ALMOST feel guilty about reminding you about your duties :lol:
But seriously I agree, a few entries can be just as hard as judging many entries. The standard is really high with the b/w posters on Mobitog and I'm proud to stand among them.
Congrats Tom and Jilly and the HM's :thumbs:

I pass the ladies regularly and they often call out for me to 'shoot' them paparazzi style. They've appeared before on here and I'm sure they're not done yet. I have to take every photographic opportunity! This is definitely my fallow period, dark mornings, dark evenings, work in the middle, busy at weekends, bring on Spring please.

It’s coming. It’s just around the corner. My daffodils are just about to flower (and no, that’s not a euphemism :mobibabe: ).
