Nothing is ever truly black and white, and this is proven by the winners of our The Zone System Rumble! Check out the different kinds of zones between the two opposites after the jump! And no, there aren't 50 shades of grey here.
Pure whites, middle greys, and pure blacks are terms that you’d encounter often in the study and practice of black & white photography. The Zone System Rumble endeavored to showcase the community’s understanding and application of the famous Zone system popularized by Ansel Adams and here we are! We’ve chosen 5 winners who’ll get 5 Piggies each. Congratulations and keep on shooting those monotones!

There is nothing better than a photo shot at the perfect moment. Henri Cartier-Bresson's principle on "The Decisive Moment" is a principle that we should still follow to this day.

For this rumble, we want to see that breathtaking moment, shot at the perfect time. And you showed us what it's like to be on time.
