Photo Contest: Monotone

PhotographyPosted by Staaan

Imagine what it would look like to see our world in a single colour tone; the trees, the cars, mountain landscapes, a view of the city, the serene atmosphere of the rural areas, etc. Would it be boring, less complicated, or still beautiful? Let’s find out!

Black and white photography is also a form of monotone photography (called monochrome). Monotone, however, means a single tone of any colour.

This contest is designed to let us see what life would look like from a single colour perspective. Take your best shots of different scenes, objects, traffic, humans, or anything and show us the result in a single colour tone of your choice. You can use the built-in settings of your camera, or use post-editing software.

To get some inspiration, have a look at this monotone contest we held on Pxleyes, 3 years ago:
