black and white love // photo challenge finalists.

Apologies for the lateness of this post. It took me longer than expected to sort through all sixty-four entries. Wow, we've got some talent here, folks. No mistake.

Thank you all for joining me for February's photo challenge, and for taking the time to share your creativity + photo skills with the world. I hope you'll join us for March's challenge.

That being said, here are our twelve February finalists, plus a few favorites that I couldn't resist showcasing. The challenge for this month was to show love through black-and-white, or to capture something you personally love. Everyone did a fantastic job!

I love this tender shot. His arm about her, she leaning upon him...beautiful.

By Beth.
Um, how could you not love this little person? What an adorable face. 

By Kelsey.
What a perfect silhouette, full of joyous love. 

This picture is just so...uniquely beautiful. So full of love yet to come for a still-innocent little girl. 

By Emily.
Gorgeousness, and what a beautiful, loveable little girl! 

By Amelia.
I adore this! A paper heart, a little girl, black and white...yes. 

This is simply the sweetest. Two brothers, havin' fun and loving each other. Great shot, Mary! 

I absolutely love this unique shot. What a wonderful idea. 

Aw! This is such a sweet, gorgeous photo. Lovely work, Hannah!

"Puppy love--" one of the sweetest loves on earth. I adore this capture. 
By Jenoelle
Oh, goodness. This is just too cute. 
By Marie
Um, this = amazing. What a shot, Marie! "Love never grows old." 

And here are a few of my personal favorites from the entries this month...

Now it's up to you. Find your absolute favorite photo from the twelve above, then vote for it on the sidebar poll. Winners 1st through 5th places will be announced later this week.

Keep capturing, photogs. You are all wonderful.
