In my recent review of “The Magic of Black & White” eBook, I gave everybody a chance to enter a contest for a free copy. After just one day, we had around 43 entries posted! Awesome turnout… but it made for some hard decisions in choosing the winners.

It was a tough choice, but I finally narrowed down my selections to a street photo, a landscape, and an abstract. These three will receive a free copy of the book, and everybody else will just have to go buy it for $5.

Youth, by Gregory Tran

shot this candid on a subway platform in nyc late one evening… took me a little to gather the courage to kneel down right in front of these guys but i’m glad i eventually shot it… taken w canon xsi + 50mm/1.4

Church Inside the Sea, by Sino

Shot at Georgioupoli, Chania, Greece with an analog Canon EOS 30, a couple of years ago. I was experimenting with developing my own negatives & then scanning and editing them in Photoshop.

Treppenhaus Küppersmühle schwarz-weiss, by Olaf | YaYapas

Taken at the stairwell in the art museum Küppersmühle in Duisburg (Germany). The convolution of the light looks much better in black and white than in color. If you want to compare take a look at

[NOTE: Olaf already bought the book, so I'll let him pass along the prize to somebody else of his choice.]

And here are a couple of additional entries that caught my eye:

Again, a great set of entries for the contest — be sure to check out the rest of them in the comment section of the book review. And if you were waiting for the results of the contest, now is a good time to go buy the book!

Thanks Brian for the choice of my photo. I feel honoured.

Since I already own the eBook and since I think that the price should remain at one of the participiants in this contest I will pass the coupon code to Sharon with her entry via FlickrMail.

Thanks again and keep up your excellent work with this blog.

I just realized that Olaf had posted a note on here about passing on the coupon to me! Thank you so much for allowing the transfer……..I loved the ebook!

(Hopefully I will win one time on my own photo merits!)
