Thank you to all the photographers that shared their  best black and white shots in the Spectacular Monochromes Photo Contest with chances to win a Prize Bundle and more!

A special thanks to our friend and professional photographer Mike Shaw for his collaboration as a guest judge in this photo contest. "I'm a working class man from a small industrial town called Widnes in the North West of England. I first picked up a camera in 2006 to see how I would fare and fell in love with the medium. Although I have no specific genre I love both portraits (human and animal) and landscapes’. I have since gone on to develop editing procedures utilizing Adobe CC and Lightroom to produce works that stand out from the norm by isolating the subject."
