The composition is awesome, Anuroop! I love how low the hippo is in the frame (sorry to hear about your lens hood, haha) and how we are able to see the water spray from its nostrils travel upwards … More

This assignment celebrated light, contrast, texture, details, and layers. Black-and-white forces us to go back to the basics—you can’t rely on stunning color to carry the image. Instead, you have to tell your story with light, making light and shadow the characters in your frame (well said, Elizabeth Paoletti).

There also were many excellent wildlife submissions, the best of which either struck a nice mood or recorded a unique behavior. Wildlife in black and white can be striking, and after looking at your submissions I am surprised it’s not seen very often in publications and in galleries.

It’s been an interesting adventure going directly from the Pop of Color assignment to Life in Black and White. With an assignment celebrating color, I found myself immersed in images with bold colors and bursts of energy. When I turned to black-and-white, I saw submissions of quiet, reserved, and moody imagery. There were also black-and-white images bursting at the seams with zest, but overall I sensed a change in energy.

I like that many of you tried to include human beings in your definition of nature. Of these pictures, the ones that worked best for me had a small figure in the frame that seemed to blend in or be an accent. The theme of human oneness with nature is an important one but hard to convey without sending a mixed message.

What humbled me from this assignment was the motivation within the community. Many of you tried black-and-white for the first time. Some chose to overcome the comfort of color, and slowed down to fully immerse into the process. And some revisited a love for the style that they started photography with.

Underwater photographs in black and white accentuate the form because they eliminate the usual blueness of a color image. Sometimes this made for the feeling of a dark underworld, but they could also have a steel-grey or high-key feel as well.

Black-and-white photography is a departure from the reality we see every day, so this quality helps to carry the viewer away to a different world and create an emotional effect of the experience. Many of the best images also took advantage of the extraordinary qualities of the digital sensor to capture scenes difficult to record with the naked eye.

Of the many lightning photographs submitted to date, this one stands out. The lightning emitting from above and below the cloud is stunning and more even feels more powerful in b&w.

Pictures of a hunt or kill are more menacing to me in black and white. Textures or patterns in nature are a difficult subject to do well. Careful composition is key, but the quality of light makes the difference between an average photo and a keeper.

Good morning world, lets enjoy another beautiful day in this world

When you break down the origin of the word “photography,” it means the study of light. There’s no better way to revisit that concept than to practice photographing in black-and-white. As photographers, we are always studying light, finding ways we can use it to tell a story and transport an audience to another place, or conversely, to somewhere familiar.

With a final tally of over 21,000 submissions, I think it’s safe to say that nature photography in black and white is alive and well in the digital age. As would be expected of National Geographic readers, the submissions were of a broad scope and of a high quality. I appreciate that many of you admire the unique attributes of the fine black-and-white photograph as championed by Ansel Adams. An intimate landscape of natural vegetation or foaming surf can still be exquisite when seen through fresh eyes. 

The irony of this photograph is both comical but so very telling of the “paradox that embraces the country between modernity and a strong popular culture.” The gas station being lit up at night cre… More

In picking my favorites, I tried to strike a balance between those images that took full advantage of the black-and-white medium and those that were all-around pleasing in their visual presentation. I enjoyed very much seeing places I’ve visited, as well as place I’ve never been or didn’t know about, through so many different and diverse viewpoints. For me, nature is a subject matter with no limits for a photographer with clear eyes and a receptive heart. I hope you feel the same.
