This Challenge is all about tones. 256 gray tones, to be exact. And your imagination, you'll need a lot of that. But you won't need any other elements than what is already here.

Turn this beautiful photo of Land's End, into a beautiful black and white photo. But don't just desaturate or convert to grayscale. Make it the best black and white image you can (without adding or deleting any features). Burn, dodge, adjust, play with channels, just don't insert anything or erase or crop.

There's a very highrez version available here:

You'll need to register, but it's free. Or you can use the medium resolution version provided here.

Challenge: Create an atmospheric black and white photo. Descriptions mandatory

Do your best, and post the results here using the following guidelines:
  • Make sure you're using the largest version of the Challenge photo
  • Enter your name in "Enter a title for the photo"
  • Enter the Challenge type and number in "Descriptive Keywords" (ie: "Photo-Art Challenge #501" or "Manipulation Challenge #132"
  • Include a complete description of the steps you used under "Photo Description". (You might want to write it elsewhere and paste it here)
  • Attach your file as an 800 pixel wide JPG file, compressed so that the overall file is under 200k (this usually means 60% compression).
  • Make sure you post to the correct Challenge
  • If you expect any comments for your entry, offer your comments to other entries

As always, there are no winners, no losers, no prizes, only a sharing and learning opportunity for everyone.

How you retouch and how much you retouch is up to you, as long as you fulfill the Challenge. Have fun, and good luck!

NOTE: As is the case for ALL RetouchPRO Challenges, there is NO expiration date on this Challenge. Even after other Challenges go up, feel free to upload your version
