You Proved It

Black and white film is an exciting way to give your photos a look and feel that ranges from raw and emotional to pretty and delicate – and you proved it!

This week we asked Lomographers to upload and tag their best b&w shots taken on nights to remember with “aint-traditional, b&w”. Then we would announce which ones were the most popular (by Likes and/or comments) among the community and friends. These are your top 3 photo choices each receiving 10 Piggy Points for their outstanding shots!

    Thanks everybody for the comments and LSI for the prize :) . The piggies are nowhere though , and this is not the first time that happened (also with the piggies from Lomomission "In Transit"). I just hope that someone from LSI notice that there is a piggy thief somewhere around and do smth about it.,,,,,
    Congratulation to all the winners. Black and white is the king of emotions.
