Admins Peek and Poll Week ~ The theme is 'Black and White'

Admins in Black and White

Chateau
 
 21

Dewdrop
 
 43

Alter Ego
 
 5

Guitarman
 
 30

Due to popular demand by the masses, the Picture Perfect Admins have participated in a little fun of our own.

To keep it fair we will be posting our pictures 'anonymously'  and will only open our blogs after the poll has been completed! Tint unfortunately has no internet this weekend and will post her blog asap!

Please view them and vote accordingly, one vote per person and this is again for contacts only. It really was good fun thinking in monochrome..with just a touch of anxiety too..

The winner will be announced in 12 hours (not 24 as previously noted) so keep your eye on the poll clock below!

We're still not clear on the prize...Im thinking the winner should get to host PP for the next 6 weeks straight...(but I'll never get away with that!)

Black and White is the theme and here are the submissions:

 

 

1. Chateau

 

 

 

 

2. Dewdrop

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. Alter ego

ALIEN

 

 

 

 

4. Guitarman

**This blog is dedicated to Cherie, who has decided to 'retire' from hosting. Her family and work needs are absorbing her time and truly that is where her responsibility lies.  Thank you so much for all your hard work here Cherie and your continued dedication to the site,  your participation as a regular is warmly anticipated! **

I consider myself so fortunate to be in the company of such a fine group of co-administrators. Thanks for playing guys..your pictures are awesome! I hope you enjoy viewing the pics as much as we did taking them!

love

Heather

  4. this was a tough one for me, as I specialized in B/W back in the day. I always say that you can see more color in a B/W photo due to the various shades of gray youhave to work with.

    They are all great so it came down to the subject and the many shades of grey that I saw.

    Good luck to you all!

  15. Cherie, thank you for the time you put into Picture Perfect. Words can't begin to describe what Picture Perfect means to me....I've tried to blog about it, but the feelings and emotions stirred everytime I travel to other places to witness another's interpretation, emotions and artistic abilities cannot be verbalized.

    Tough choices this week, I will have to come back to this!

    Be blessed today and every day!

  24. Beautiful pictures, all. I have my favorite, too, but I'm just going to keep that to myself and cast my vote. All four are superb photos. Great work!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I like them all; from the stately, impressive building (with interesting foreground), to the crisp macro of the the dew drop, to the other worldly distorted alien.

    As Lollapalooza goes on this weekend in Chicago, I feel quite comfortable picking guitarman as my favorite. (Actually what sold me was the subject, shading, and angle.)

    That was fun: you admins should do this more often - I like seeing what you come up with.
