#476 - "Minimalistic Imagery"
Posted By: Kerrowdown, 11-05-2019, 04:53 PM

Thank you to noelcmn for hosting last weeks challenge and for also selecting my wee bit of fun image as the winner.

All I'm gonna say about that image is... for all those years when I run off with the circus, it obviously benefitted and honed my animal training skills, to what you see here.

For this weeks challenge I've gone for something which I hope you will all find a little different... "Minimalistic Imagery"

This could have many interpretations, so I'm hoping this will stimulate some varied and interesting entries. It could be about purely a simple composition, a lack of colours, hinted detail or my favourite... the use of negative space.

The Challenge will close on midnight (GMT) Sunday 10th November 2019.

1. Post ONE photo.
2. The photo must portray an interpretation of the theme.
3. Post your single picture in this thread and explain what motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly theme (especially if it's not obvious).
4. The challenge is interactive. Any response is welcome.
5. The judge will pick the WINNERS and choose one of them to be the judge for the next week.
6. This challenge runs for 7 days plus an additional day for the judge to choose the winners.
7. Any Pentax camera can be used.
8. Pictures can be from any time frame, not just within the week of the current theme.
9. In case the winner of a challenge is unable to become the judge for the next challenge, they will PM the #2 winner for that person to be the judge.

One from me to get things started, which does in fact contain all four of my suggestions... ?

I didn't take this photo for this challenge, a few years ago I was testing my new macro lens as a short telephoto.

Here's my take at minimalism. Just lines leading to a horizon, very little colour (though not B&W) and the endless reflection patterns in the waves. I'd love to be there again in that moment.

Twenty-five years ago my daughter and I walked out on this pier to watch the porpoises gambol in Aransas Bay. A full color version of this photo hangs in my study, but I decided on a high-key finished monochrome for this contest.
