    MPC #166: Black and White Minimalism 12/5-1/7

    Topic: Black and White Minimalism
    This time of year the landscape is rather colorless in many places. Lets see how you capture simple scenes in black and white.

    I'm going to run this through the first week of January so that everyone has plenty of time to get out during the holidays.


    RULES:

    1. Photos must be taken within the time period of the contest.
    2. You may submit 3 photos during the competition.
    3. The contest moderator will choose 5 (or 6) photos to be voted on.
    4. The winner will get a happy feeling in his/her pants. (That is a rule by the way, not an option.)
    5. In the event of a tie, the contest moderator will have the deciding vote.
    6. Winner will be the contest starter/moderator for the next comp.
    7. The winner has 3 days to start a new contest or 2nd place becomes the new winner.
    8. And have fun.

    Been a while since I've been on TGR. This MPC caught my eye though, and happened to have just shot this recently (within the timeframe):

    BaNosser #2 and BeardedClam #2 are both rad. Need to come up with something in the next coupla days here.

If someone could make a jacket of those three things it would no doubt be the most popular and prized item in all of your closets.
