Monochrome Madness

Every Thursday, Leanne Cole, a Fine Art Photographer based in Melbourne, hosts a wonderful project called Monochrome Madness.  This is a photographic challenge which attracts participants from all over the world.  Every week, we submit a monochrome image, typically black & white, and sometimes comment on each other’s work.

We are now into the third year of the project.  So the galleries display images submitted by Chris to date. As most of these images were taken as coloured photographs originally, it has been interesting to understand which images are suited to a black & white conversion.  Some are obvious, such as the much loved cygnet hitchhiking on its mum’s back from Year One, or the jellyfish in Year Two, because they are in the main already monochrome or high in contrast.  But for others, especially landscapes and seascapes, it is not as easy as might appear.  That is the nature of the challenge.
