Nicola Kelleher: "The light through the clock face gave the shadows in this photograph, taken in Paris, its monochrome effect."

Daniel Furon: "Black and white coffee cups and saucers of Cafe de Stijl, San Francisco, California. De Stijl was a Dutch art movement [that started in 1917] and was mainly based on clean geometric abstraction."

Eddie Dodd: "Sycamore gap in Northumberland. The sunrise was disappointing but the scenery wasn't. This was all about the texture of the rock in the foreground against the tree in the background."

Kizzie Murray: "Forgotten Britain is a personal project I've been working on for the past few months on homelessness. Walking through urban streets in Britain, such as in London, Slough and Leicester, for example, I'd walk past homeless people. After a time their faces would linger in my mind, remembering the moments where passers-by would turn the other way pretending not to see them or often cross the road."

Kevin Donegan: "I was returning home after work one day and was greeted by this glorious scene. It was so stunning that I immediately got off the bus and shot a load of images with my Canon EOS 650D (which is pretty much always with me). The scene is looking across East Float Dock in Birkenhead, towards Liverpool. The sky was rich with reds, pinks and purples, but the details came alive when I converted the image to black and white."

Gary Cox: "I wanted to capture the harsh texture of the rhino's skin and felt that this would be more obvious if the image was black and white. The resulting picture is definitely one of my favourites."

Tony Hawkins: "I shot with a 10-stop neutral density filter last summer before converting to black and white. I tried to show the rust on the pillar of the pier at Southwold [in eastern England] and I think the conversion suits the image."
