: For the past two weeks we've asked you to go on a color fast for our black-and-white photo contest
, with enlightening results. We now permit you to gorge on the entire visible spectrum once again, but first check out the fruits of your abstinence. These 10 photos are the highest-ranking black and whites among Wired.com readers. Whiffleboy won the contest with his photo "A Bit Spotty," at left. Whiffleboy will be receiving a subscription to Wired magazine and a digital picture frame for his desk.
Since we had so many great photos that we thought should've received more votes, we've also compiled a Wired.com Editor's Choice Black-and-White Photo Gallery
Our next twice-monthly photo contest is water. Show us your best homage to life's elixir. Check out the contest page
for more information.

"Canon EOS 400D. Sigma Lenses 70-200mm f/2.8. This picture was taken in a rock festival in Sao Paulo, Brazil, promoted by a radio station with lots of famous Brazilian bands. But in my point of view this moment was unique, the stage was all covered with smoke, her hair was flying with the wind and her face was so quiet and peaceful behind all that noise, I had to take a shot and document that moment."
