Tonal contrast is the difference between the lightest and darkest parts of an image. In this contest I want to see images which show a full range of tones from the darkest blacks to the brightest whites. Your black and white image could show any subject, but more successful high contrast images will often show strong shapes and bold lines, such as could be found in modern architecture. Another option for effective images are landscapes or street photography, shot in the harsh bright light of the middle of the day. In your image, please ensure the tones range fully from pure black to pure white. I look forward to your entries.

How it works

Every photo submitted will be available for the crowd to rate once the submissions period has ended. You can see all the images uploaded to a contest, but will need to rate them to see how they’re ranked once the rating period begins.

Some contests on Photocrowd also have a judge. After the submission period closes the judge chooses their favourite images and writes some image reviews. The crowd and judge results will be announced on the same day.
