Black and White

This group is for 100% black and white images - Images that are mostly black and white are not permitted. Sepia images are okay for now, as long as they are near black and white.
NOTE: The one change to the group rules is if you have an image that has 1 item [ not on multi items throughout the photo ] with 1 color is NOW PERMITTED!

IMAGES WILL BE MONITORED FOR AWHILE TO MAKE SURE THE 1 IMAGE 1 COLOR RULE IS SUPPORTED!
-----------------------------------------------
Sometimes beauty resides in the simplicity that can only be found when complete focus is given to the subject matter. The absence of color allows the artistic sensation to reach the brain in a different (and less often used) manner. Whether photographs, paintings, or contemporary modern art are your favorite medium, hang out here to discuss and explore the benefits of living without color.

Full color vs Black & White

OPENED TO ALL VISITORS & MEMBERS

What differences do you find in a photo that is black & white instead of full color? [besides the absence of color]

I sense an overlaying feeling of Nostalgia. Almost regardless of the content - there's a feeling reminiscent of a pleasant dreamlike yesteryear.

Omniar you are so right! I think the reminiscent of a pleasant dreamlike yesteryear is a wonderful way to put it! You can make up your owe story about what's happening in the image - the feelings that come to you when you look a black and white photo.When you look at a colored picture - you look more at how the picture is shaded or the brightness of the colors - many times loosing the true image itself to the beauty of the hues.... The more color the less you real 'see' the image itself. Thanks for your comment here. I'd love for more people to participate in this discussion - I'd like to know what you see when you look at a Black and White photo!
