Three Black & White eBook Winners

In my recent review of “The Magic of Black & White” eBook, I gave everybody a chance to enter a contest for a free copy. After just one day, we had around 43 entries posted! Awesome turnout… but it made for some hard decisions in choosing the winners.

It was a tough choice, but I finally narrowed down my selections to a street photo, a landscape, and an abstract. These three will receive a free copy of the book, and everybody else will just have to go buy it for $5.

Church Inside the Sea, by Sino

Shot at Georgioupoli, Chania, Greece with an analog Canon EOS 30, a couple of years ago. I was experimenting with developing my own negatives & then scanning and editing them in Photoshop.

Treppenhaus Küppersmühle schwarz-weiss, by Olaf | YaYapas

Taken at the stairwell in the art museum Küppersmühle in Duisburg (Germany). The convolution of the light looks much better in black and white than in color. If you want to compare take a look at https://www.flickr.com/photos/go_freyer/2948134180

[NOTE: Olaf already bought the book, so I’ll let him pass along the prize to somebody else of his choice.]

And here are a couple of additional entries that caught my eye:
