This is the 9th of 21 pictures I took of this cube for this challenge. Yes, it is a little crazy (or at least I thought so way back when I took it) but I kept playing with possibilities and decided to come back to this. It stands for the fustration of doing a Rubiks cube and the insanity it causes. It probably doesn't fit the challenge as some people would like it too, but it is just a different take on the challenge.

Brightness/Contrast, Crop, Resize, Greyscale, Sepia, Unsharpen Mask.

I'm sorry, but being a Rubiks kid, this shot just doesn't work without the colors...

Sometimes monochrome is dramatic, but on this particular shot, I think it takes away from what makes a Rubik's cube interesting to look at - all those vibrant colors.

i absolutely love the idea; i love the rubick's cube.....at first i wasn't sure about the black and white, but it makes the colors seem to blend together more and make it even more confusing. very nice photo. 10/10

A fairly good idea, but a little dull. (I'm not sure why it's not in color.)

Why this sepian tone? I would like to see the colors. Give you 4.

Neat idea, and angle. Tones are nice, but Sepia? What's a rubics cube without full color? Easy, that's the answer. Wouldn't drive one insane. 7.

i think this is the most interesting rubix cube shot i have seen on this site. presenting it without the normal bright colors is very opposite of what everyone normally does, which makes yours very unique. nice job.

not a fan of how the cube is positioned within the frame, the idea was cool, tho
