Alright, the last couple of months have been easy. "Victory" and "Ouch! That hurts!!!" It's time for something a bit more challenging.

This one has been on my list of challenges for quite some time, so when an impetus recently came along, it was a natural choice. We have a brand new Black & White forum, dedicated to the sharing of B&W images and techniques, so now you know what the challenge will be.

This month it's all about black and white, although sepia is also acceptable. For you film shooters this may be easy if you have an good old B&W shot or a scanner, but if not then think about a sport you shoot that might look good in B&W. For you digital folks it will likely be easier as you can use postprocessing to convert.

If the original is in color please include it in your post so that we can compare them, seeing how B&W changes the image and our reaction to it. I suspect there will be some pleasant surprises.

You may, as always, submit more than one entry.

This challenge should require some thought. THINK about the sports you shoot and the conditions in which you shoot them that might lend themselves to B&W or sepia. What if a local magazine called you and said they were running a story about sports 50 or more years ago, all of the old pictures were in B&W, and they wanted current B&W images of the same sports to help add to the comparisons in the article. What would you do?
