For Crank Up the Contrast, we challenged the community to blow up the contrast of their black and white shots. We skip passed the subtle grey tones and smooth transitions. This competition was all about 1 and 0, on and off, black and white. Take a look at the winning photographs.
Grand Prize Winner:
Here’s what the jury has to say about this photo:
“The panoramic format proved to be the perfect choice for zhenyaetoya's photo. By generously framing the blazing flame and we can almost feel the vast black emptiness surrounding it. Almost like a riddle wrapped in an enigma, this photo kept us wondering where it was taken and whose face it was behind the piercing flash of light.”
Lomographer @zhenyaetoya will get a voucher worth 50 EUR for the Lomography online shop while the runners-up will receive 15 piggies each. All winners qualify for the year-end Ten And One - Annual Lomography Photo Awards under the “Monochrome” category.
