MM 3-43: Monochrome Madness


Less than 10 weeks to our third year anniversary, amazing that we are still going. Should we do something special?

Please remember to include all information when you send your images, which means a link, if you have one. I don’t always know what they are, and it takes me a lot longer to do the post if I have to go looking for them.

Don’t forget the next theme is the first Thursday in March and it is Shadow/s, your interpretation.


I’ve been very fortunate and Canon Australia have lent me a 5D Mark IV to play around with and some lenses. I took the camera to Tenby Point the day I got the camera to try it with some long exposures. This is one of them. It is a long exposure image taken using the 16-35mm f4 lens and my Formatt Hitech Firecrest 13 Stop ND Filter. Of course, all supported with my Benro tripod.  I also gave the image a slight blue tinge to help give it more mood.

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
  • 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.
