Contest goal:

Good black and white photography is able to present form and depth through different values. Your goal here is to present a black and white photograph that shows a range of values from light to dark, so that we can see depth and form in sharp focus. Excessive blur using depth of field will be considered off theme. Good contrasts is the "focus" here.

kyricom: Nice theme... but pretty close to the B&W landscape theme going on now ( 5 years and 1343 days ago )
Contest Moderator: It's actually about creating a well balanced B&W photo, not anything specifically to do with landscapes in particular. Instead of the Hi-Key or Low-Key technique, we are looking for a varied tonal range... ( 5 years and 1343 days ago )
kyricom: Yes, I understand that... but... ( 5 years and 1343 days ago )
pup531: do u hav to hav taken the photo? and also how many times can u enter? (different photo's that is) ( 5 years and 1342 days ago )
kyricom: Yes, pup... on this site all entries from you should be taken by you. You can enter up to three different shots per theme. If you click on the "help" link on the top horozontal menu it has all the rules and guidelines. Good luck and have fun! ( 5 years and 1342 days ago )
pup531: thanks for the help ( 5 years and 1342 days ago )
TwilightMuse: So if the background is blurred it will be removed? ( 5 years and 1339 days ago )
Contest Moderator: According to the guidelines "Excessive blur using depth of field will be considered off theme." I interpret that to mean that if only a small portion of the image is in focus, such as some of the "shallow DOF" contests for instance, then yes, it would be off theme. Also, if you chose to enter a macro for instance,take care to watch your depth of field and ensure most of the image is in clear focus. A bit of BG blur in most images is normal IMO.

TwilightMuse: Okay, Thank you for clarifying. ( 5 years and 1335 days ago )
