Ok, I have made a selection on Dorothy's behalf and it is Cornelius's lovely
Apple Blossom Time It fills the screen with beauty and reminds me that for us in the southern hemisphere, Spring is just around the corner :)

Thanks Lyn, very much appreciated!

I've chosen Sandi's Zoo Visit #1 B&W image.
My motivation: it's my kind of a reward for Mr (or Mrs?) Owl's friendly behavior. Every time when I visit the list with selectable BWC images in order to view the mentioned images there, it gives me wink. I have never met such a friendly bird. It makes me smile every time. An example for all the 'maritime pigeons' (aka sea gulls) who are teasing me constantly with their droppings.
Seriously now: it's a perfect bird 'portrait' with a very friendly appearance thanks to the choice of B&W. Therefore it's my choice.

I'll send Lyn a PM and will send a copy of it to Sandi to inform her as well.

Thanks Jeff, very much appreciated!

I've chosen Bob's Underground... image.
My motivation: B&W in combination with a perfect way of editing has enhanced the 'classical' appearance of this image, showing the below the ground level part of the upper main hall of this Fountain Abbey Cloister, in an important way. The lighting of this image is the well known cherry on top of the cake! Therefore it's my choice.

I'll send Lyn a PM and will send a copy of it to Jeff, and Bob to inform them as well.

I've chosen Jeff's Young Robin in B/W image.
My motivation: It's resembles a subtle B&W (charcoal or pencil) drawing. To me the unfocused leaves in the foreground are just bokeh and are helpful to give full attention to the robin. A perfect composition too. A wonderful B&W capture! Therefore it's my choice.

I'll send Lyn a PM and will send a copy of it to Jeff, and Richie to inform them as well.

Perhaps a matter of wishful thinking in these gray and stormy days now, ☺ . It's anyhow my choice.

Steve's Silver Birch -- Again and Again is the one for me.

It was hard to choose! I tried all the wallpapers on my iPad and shortlisted those that worked best, then looked at them on a desktop display. In my view this one makes a cool wallpaper on both devices. There is nice contrast and the sharp twigs work as a focal point.

I feel there are no especial rules about what looks good on an iPad -- it's nice to come out of an app and be hit between the eyes by something that's soft and attractive, bold and jazzy, or creative and cool. I just wish they would stop frosting the dock at the bottom of the iPad home page....

Thanks Ted and thanks Lyn. I'm choosing your (Lyn's) Steampunk #10 - The Aethertractor. Thant thing just needs to be darkened a bit, put a few cob webs here and there, and it would be suitable for Halloween with that skull head on it.

Thanks Lyn, very much appreciated!

I've chosen Sandi's A Michigan Sunset_Lake Hudson B&W image.
My motivation: both the colored and B&W versions are wonderful. I don't like to compare the B&W version with the colored version however, because each version has its own charm and exudes a different mood. Each version have their special features: the colored version has some more warmth while the reflections of the B&W version are more intense. Because it's a B&W challenge, I'm choosing for the latter one.

I'll send Lyn a PM and will send a copy of it to Sandi to inform her as well.

I've chosen Sandi's A Local Nature Area_B&W image.
My motivation: I've already said in my comment that the Photomatix Pro editing has added a dreamy look to the the result of the 3 compiled initial images. The B&W result has a painterly and moody character. It has the appearance of unspoiled nature. I don't know whether this is true or not. This appearance has made it to my choice however!

I'll send Lyn a PM and will send a copy of it to Sandi and Richie to inform them as well.

Kia Ora B&W Challenge friends.
Today there are SIX new images added to the list (so far) and as always thank you to the artists for their fine efforts. I also want to thank those of you who are actively encouraging participation. It has been your input from the beginning that has kept the BWC alive for so long.

Which brings me to the fact that on 25th October we shall have been alive for 5 years !
On our first day in 2012 we had 33 submissions to choose from.

There have been many participants come and go during that time. Some are sadly missed but we remain strong with the dedicated members who have been here since day one and those who have joined in along the way. Caedes membership overall has dropped considerably since 2012 so it is to be expected there should be a smaller group interested in B&W works now. What we lack in numbers is compensated for by dedication.

I believe the BWC has kindled extra interest in B&W which was its intention from the start so in that respect I think we can all claim success.

I wish I could throw a 5th anniversary party for you all but instead suggest we celebrate with a bumper number of submissions on Wednesday 25th October !!

LE :)
