    Ah, damn, I only have Kodak and Ilford B&W shots, so I won't submit. Anyways, I think the latest portraits of @earlybird are just insane and would deserve to win (if I was to chose, hehe)

    well... if you would add LOMO in the title of that rumble it would be more clear directly "... shot with LOMO B&W film...." because that is also what shows up in the direct submit box next to the photos...

    I have photos I would like to submit. I used Lomography B+W negative 100 film (before earl/lady grey came out)... But in the rules above it only mentions Earl Grey and Lady Grey... I imagine I can still submit them?? Since it still is a Lomo film??
