2017 The Best Black and White Photographs.

It is that time of the year again! The best black and white photos of the past year (by me).

The concept is easy: 
Just write in the comments which of the photos you like (refer to the name).Vote for as many as you like and feel free to say what you think about them.

I have run this competition for the past eight years. Should you want to check out the previous editions:
2016,    2015,    2014,    2013,      2012,      2011,     2010,     2009

This year, it was really hard to narrow it down to the final selection.
The original selection for colour was over 70 photos - from the huge volume of approximately 1,500 I have taken during the year, but sometimes you have to make hard decisions. 

If you have friends you want to share this with, just give them the link. There is a black & white photo section as well, and don't forget a random voter will be selected for a prize as well.
