What Photos Look Like ADMIN November 15, 2014
NB&W is a moderated collection of light and dark rectangles.

The best way to get a photo into the pool is to submit a good shot that the moderator has not seen before, or that saws at the ragged edge of the now, or that could have only truly made sense in B&W.

Group Description

Black and White are the true tones of photography: hope & despair.

Find new blood in that old pitch. Photograph today, in deliberate Black and White.

This is a public group with a moderated photo pool — the group's ambition is to showcase a concentration of great, memorable black and white images that push past the expected boundaries, so don't be surprised if casual black and white snaps — or even some pretty good shots — aren't in the pool. High pool volume isn't required, and on average only about five or ten percent of photos submitted end up in the visible pool.

Group Rules

The ideas of "new kinds of pictures" and "rules" don't really go together.

Please be sure to read the group description, because the admin enjoys spending his sunny afternoons sitting indoors in front of flickr throwing out photos that don't remotely suit the tenor of the group.

If your pic gets kicked and you really believe it shouldn't, STAND UP FOR YOUR PICTURES in the discussion area. You owe it to them if they're really worthwhile.
