Deal 9: Hacking Photography mega-deal
Earlier today we published a collection of 27 Black and White Landscape images. So it seemed appropriate to make this weeks challenge on that theme – Black and White Landscapes.
While black and white might not necessarily always come to mind for landscapes I think it’s a great challenge to play around with. Taking colour out of the equation forces a photographer to think about other elements – their composition, texture, tone, light and shadow and more.
If you’re not able to get out into a rural area this week to take your shot – we don’t mind if your landscape is more of an urban landscape – in fact there’s great potential in some black and white cityscapes too.
Once you’ve selected the ‘Black and White Landscape’ image that you’d like to share – upload it to your favourite photo sharing site or blog and either share a link to it or – embed them in the comments using the our new tool to do so.
Remember these challenges are not just about finding pictures in your archives to share – we’d really love to see you getting out your camera and taking a new photo – after all that’s what dPS is about, helping you take better shots rather than just celebrating past shots.
If you tag your photos on Flickr, Instagram, Twitter or other sites with Tagging tag them as #DPSBWLANDSCAPE to help others find them. Linking back to this page might also help others know what you’re doing so that they can share in the fun.
Also – don’t forget to check out some of the great shots posted in last weeks challenge – Black and White Portraits challenge where there were some great shots submitted.

Not sure if it is me or the website but cannot seem to upload the image in comment section, therefore just leaving the link here. Thanks for the idea of B&W landscape:

not much around here in way of interesting landscapes
basically sub-division central
lots of old barns and garages though
hopefully that is a future challenge

I really love black and white so I was excited about this challenge.

Sunrise at the wind farm construction is a beautiful array of colour but turns out it looks pretty good in black and white also.

It is a rare moment when such a heavy frost would appear without snow on the ground already, and that is what happened on this particular day. I knew the frost on the trees and the dark, organic soil could make an intriguing black and white composition:

Hopefully I'm not to late - can't tell what the dates are from the post... Anyway, here's a B&W version of a landscape I shot over the weekend. The image attachment tool isn't working (just asks for a web URL), so I just uploaded to 500px. Here's the link:
