MM 2-6: Monochrome Madness 2-6

Each week I think I will start this post early, yet I don’t ever seem to get it done. I am not sure why, but I think it’s because I can’t start until I know what image I am going to do. Sometimes I start working it out early, other times, actually most times, I don’t seem to start it until the Monday or Tuesday.  Today hasn’t been any different, and I have finally got my image done for the week.  It is good to see that most of you are much better at getting  your images done early and then send them to me.

queenstreet-melbourne-buildings-anz-tower

Without a doubt, this would have to be one of my favourite buildings in the city.  This image was taken a few weeks ago, actually the same morning as the image I took for last weeks MM.  I have changed the sky in this one though.  I was also trying some new things.

Don’t forget all the instructions on how to enter your own images are at the bottom of the post.  If you have entered an image then please remember to check your image in the gallery, scroll down and see if anyone has left you any comments.

Now, Monochrome Madness will continue next week and if you wish to participate and submit an image here is how you do it:-

  • You must email me the image you want to include and if you have a blog or website, or somewhere else, please include the link. My email address is leanne@leannecole.com.au
  • The image size should be low res, so the largest side should be 1000 pixels or less.
  • Please insert either your name or your blogs name in the file name.
  • Remember I am on Australian time, so with GMT I am +11 hours at the moment, I publish my post on Wednesday morning.
  • If you need more help with sending images, and get confused about time zones, etc, well, there is a great website called The World Clock, if you go to that and look at Melbourne time, if it’s before 6pm on Tuesday evening, then you can still send me images.  If it’s after that time, you can send me an image, but it will be set aside for the following week.
  • Remember to include a link to your blog or website.
  • Please remember to resize your images, it is fairly simply, you just need to go into any editing software and usually under Image you will find, resize, scale, or image size, something like that and you can resize your image there. Change the dimensions to pixels and make the longest side 1000 pixels or smaller, hit return, and for most types of software that should change the other side automatically as well. Just remember to save it with a different name so you know it is the smaller version.  If you have any problems, please contact me, I don’t mind helping out.

Please note you don’t have to be a WordPress blogger to be in this challenge, you can have a link to a Facebook page, a Flickr page, anywhere really, or no link.  We just want to encourage people to do monochrome images, just for the madness of it. Just to let you know also, that as soon as the challenge is published, all emails and images you have sent me are deleted from my computer.  I respect your copyright and would never keep any of the images.

MM 2-5: Monochrome Madness 2-5

This week has gone so fast, and I am a day behind in my mind, but here we are and it is time for me to get MM ready again.  There has been some confusion, but please remember that the monochrome madness themes are only happening the first week of each month.

Let take a look at this week.

This is an image I took last weekend in the city when I was taking some photos with a friend early in the morning.  It was one of the last images I took before we left the city.

MM2-4: Monochrome Madness 2-4 with a Theme

Here is our first theme for Monochrome Madness and it seems my first choice of MM was not great and many people found it very hard. So I apologize for that.  Now I didn’t think how people would figure out what the MM is for each photo, so I am hoping that all the people who submitted will have it on their blogs, though some have it in the file name.

There will be one gallery for the theme photos and a second gallery for those that forgot or didn’t want to do the challenge, which is fine as well.  I used to always avoid themes.

The next theme is going to be Fences, you take what you like with that idea and it will be for MM 2-9. Let’s have a look at the images for the theme MM.

light-trails-flinders-street-station-bw

My image, “Melbourne Moving” or “Moving Melbourne” or “Melbourne on the Move”, a few options for you.  This is actually an old photo that I thought would be great for this post, I hope you think so too.

MM 2-3: Monochrome Madness 2-3

To start off I need to make some things clear about the theme next week.  The theme is ‘MM’ and the idea is to use those letters, whether in the title or not.  As someone pointed out last week my image would have been perfect for it “Melbourne Museum”.  I wish I had thought of it and saved the image.  You can do something with the letters MM, or you could do things like “monochrome mop”, “moving moat” I don’t know, but hopefully you get the idea.  I promise the next theme will not be this difficult.

So shall we get on with this weeks Monochrome Madness.

banyule-flats-sunrise-sun-rays

I went back to Banyule Flats on Sunday to get the sunrise.  Well, the sunrise didn’t happen, but as we were getting ready to leave we saw the sun bursting through the trees on the other side, so we rushed to get some photos of it before they went away.  I loved the rays.  The image was pretty much this colour, but I made it monochrome and then copied the tone from the original image and put it back on this image.

MM 2-2: Monochrome Madness 2-2

The second week and great to see so many still wanting to do Monochrome Madness. I think there has been some confusion about the theme.  While there is going to be a theme it will only be once a month, so if you want to get one ready then the theme will be in MM 2-4.  As I explained before, there will be two galleries that week, one for the theme and one for those that don’t want to do it.

MM 2-4 theme will MM.

I thought I should mention, and some of you may have noticed last week, that I’m not featuring Laura Macky’s image anymore. Laura decided that she would leave the second year to me.  She will participate when she can, but just wants to be like everyone else. I hope I said that right.

melbourne-museum-victoria-monochrome

This image was taken a while ago when I went into the city to take some photos of the Royal Exhibition Building.  While we were walk around it I saw the light on the Museum and because interested in it for a while.  I like the symmetrical nature of it, then I thought all the lines would make an interesting monochrome image.

MM 2-1: Monochrome Madness 2-1

Here we are the first week of our second year.  How wonderful is that?  Not that much is going to change, but there is one thing that some people have asked for, and that is about doing themes.  I thought about this and have decided, why not, but not every week, so from now on the first MM of each month will have a theme.  Now you don’t have to do it, and on that first one each month I will do two galleries, one for the themes and one for normal entries, however you can only enter one image for the week and you have to decide if you will do the theme or not.  I am not good at making up themes, or working out what to do, so feel free to leave some decisions.

So for our first theme what about the letters MM? You decide how to use them.

I have been spending quite a bit of time on the beaches at Jan Juc lately with Chris from sv-takeiteasy and this image seemed like a good one to do in monochrome.

MM52: Monochrome Madness One Year On

We did it. Congratulations everyone who has participated, what a great achievement.

We made it to our first anniversary for Monochrome Madness.  I don’t know about you, but I have produced so many monochrome images in the last 12 months, well, at least 52 as I have done one every week that we have done this.  I have thoroughly enjoyed the experience of doing this, and love how it drives me to keep going each week and doing more monochrome images.

pinnacles-phillip-island-black-white-3

I had to get help with what image to choose, it was so tough, but in the end my friend Chris and I decided this was a stand out.  I took this earlier this year at the Pinnacles on Phillip Island.  It was a long exposure and I do love how it came out.  So this is my favourite from the last 12 months.  Of course there were others, but I do really love this one.
