*Official* Bimmerpost photo contest no.83 | "Ansel Adams"

*Official* Bimmerpost photo contest no.83 | "Ansel Adams"

Ok, so I went to an Ansel Adams exhibit today. I was impressed with how well he captured detail in shadows and in highlights with no HDR/Photoshop to aid him. His images are overall darker than we're used to seeing these days, but I guess that was necessary to retain detail in the highlights.

So here's the deal. *SINGLE SHOT* B&W images with good dynamic range. They don't have to be landscapes (Adams had plenty of portraits). What is not allowed are multi-shot exposures or HDR, or even pseudo-HDR where you create multiple version of a single shot and combine them. You must get this right in camera with adjustments using the editor of your choice to the one image only. Converting existing multi-shot images to B&W is also verboten. We'll use the honor system here.

Submissions will close on Sunday March 23rd, 2014 at 9:00PM CDT. That gives you two weekends without drawing this out too long.

1. Any interpretation of the theme that falls within Bimmerpost.com rules is welcome.
2. You must be the person that took the photo. Photos taken prior to the start of the contest are acceptable as long as you are the one that captured the image.
3. One submission per contest, and you cannot resubmit a photo that you've submitted before in a previous contest.
4. Images must be no larger than 1024 px in any direction. Links to larger images are allowed but you must have one that is no more than 1024 px for the poll.
5. All contestants must host their own pictures (which includes hosting them on Bimmerpost).
6. All images must have a title.
7. While post processing in Photoshop is allowed, adding or removing parts of the picture is not. In the event a photo is suspected to be "photo-chopped," the contestant will be asked to provide the original picture.

Absolutely. Filters are allowed. And of course, the shot doesn't have to be taken as a B&W. Conversions are fine.
