MM 4-4: Monochrome Madness

It has been a great week on this blog, and while many things are changing it is nice that Monochrome Madness will continue for the time being. I haven’t had many people sending in photos this week, but it is still going to be a great set.

Don’t forget the theme for the next challenge at the beginning of next month, Repetition. As always your interpretation.

When  I was down at Jan Juc we took a trip to Aireys Inlet and the lighthouse there. This was taken on the second trip and we were trying to do long exposures in between rain. I saw these clouds and thought it would make a good image with them as they were. I was right in the end as the long exposures didn’t turn out nearly as well. These were really amazing, and I’m glad I took the time to photograph them before putting on the filters. I could have left it in black and white, which would have been fine, but, I don’t know, something was telling me I needed to warm it up a bit, so I put a slight yellow tone over the top. I think it works better.


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.

Monochrome Madness each 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 Thursday 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.

  1. Just to clarify, the theme will be for the 6/1 post – not this coming week, but next week, right? Just thought I’d check as it’ll still be May when photos are submitted. Thanks!

  4. good choice on the lighthouse! Beautiful dramatic image! and a lovely selection this week 🙂

  5. Drat! I only just realized I failed to actually send you an image this week… oh well. Next week for sure!

    I love that lighthouse, and I agree the warmth of the yellow adds to its appeal. Nice images all around.

  6. I like them all. The lighthouse is so dramatic!

Talk to me, it is too quiet.
