Weekly Challenge #118 – Minimalism
Posted By: Light_Horseman, 11-23-2009, 10:33 AM

Weekly Challenge #118 – Minimalism

The challenge explained:
Minimalism is art that emphasizes simplification of form, as by the use of basic shapes and monochromatic palettes of colours, objectivity, and anonymity of style. I have been exploring minimalism when I can in my photos and trying to recognise which subjects benefit from this perspective. There are various interpretations of minimalism so I will be looking for photos that show a subject in basic form, yet still has an impact and/or is aesthetically pleasing.

Challenge Starts:
Now!

Challenge Ends:
Tuesday, Dec. 1st @ 11:59pm EST

Results:
Wednesday, Dec. 2nd

The fine print....
1. Post ONE photo (max 1000x1000).
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
4. The challenge is interactive. Any response is welcome.
5. The judge will pick the WINNERS and chose 1 of them to be the judge for the next week.
6. This challenge runs for 7 days plus a day for the judge to choose the winners.
7. Any Pentax camera will do or a Samsung DSLR.
8. Pictures can be from any time frame, not just within the week of the current theme.

Mike
So what's the brownish trail Mike, is that the pilots own vapor produced when the boosters kicked in?

They do. The trail looks like the smoke from combustion, much more visible than normal due to the bright background. Now, if it had been an F-4, you might not be able to even see the plane due to the smoke trail they left!

Been there seen that... LOL I think what Gary meant was the pilot's "personal" vapor (due to the color...)

U.S. Navy F/A-18 shot at the 2008 NAS Oceana Air Show. Just thought the vapor burst against the overcast sky looked pretty neat.
Is is. I'm glad you added this. Thought this was a photo that could be appropriate for the "what is it" thread too. Now that I know what it is, it makes so much sense.

Yeah, missed that. It was early this morning and my brain was a little foggy to get the joke.
