This week, I'm looking for mood. Anything black & white that's, well, moody. For instance, here's what I'd consider a moody photo of a branch (external link). Doesn't have to be horror'ish moody like that; any mood will do. :)

This challenge begins when posted, and will end at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time, Friday, June 6, 2014. Winner of this challenge will be announced shortly thereafter.

Standard Rules apply:
Photo Submissions:

1. Camera - Any Canon DSLR Camera
2. Time - any on-topic photo taken at any time is eligible, although photos that have won other competitions should NOT be entered.
3. Size - Please visit Image Posting Rules.
4. Post-Processing - do whatever you like and the host will decide if it works.
5. Posting - * ONE PHOTO per photographer in each challenge.* Photo Name in the message subject line.* Camera model & lens used.* Notes -- post brief EXIF data including ISO, shutter speed and aperture used.
6. Commenting - No commenting during challenge. When the posting is closed and a winner has been declared, comments can be made in this thread.
7. Keep it clean, and both Family and Work safe.
8. Have questions, PM me.
9. Have FUN!

One challenge every week, on the following schedule:

* New Topic - After winner is declared.
* Posting Starts - Right after topic is announced.
* Posting Ends - 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time, June 6, 2014.
* Winner from this competition decides the theme of the next one (and judges it for a winner) after this competition is closed.

I'm here but mobile only. I don't think it fair to judge without at least looking on a computer screen. I'll post the winner by tomorrow, as soon as I can get to the computer.

Ok folks, sorry for the delay in getting to a PC! First off, every one of the submissions was great, I wish there could be more than one winner. Unfortunately, that's not the way it works, and there can only be one moody B&W winner.

This week's winner is sandwedge, with his extremely powerful portrait "Life Sentence". Simple, yet fraught with mood - in this case what looks like despair. Wow, what a photo.

Prior to that being posted, I was leaning toward - and coming in a very close second - airfrogusmc's Approaching Storm New Mexico.

Great submissions everyone!

Congratulations, Sandwedge - I thought your entry was a no-brainer choice for top spot this week as soon as I saw it, but I would have had a tougher job coming up with runners up.
