Thinking...

This is my attempt at a minimalist image in response to Sally's Get Pushed challenge "either take a minimalistic shot or to shoot opposites. The choice is yours." I may do both (let's see).

I looked up minimalist art and, as usual, there was a fair degree of variation in the kind of images labelled as such. Many had a high key simple approach which I have tried to emulate here.

Many thanks for all your recent comments and favs. Much appreciated.
Gosh, this image seems so very sad. A lonely figure, head down with a lonely shadow. It fits with your challenge very well. Though I want to jump through the frame and give that person a hug!

Well done. This would work for the "low key" challenge that I got :-)

Definitely minimalist in my book. I really love the long shadow too.

Lovely. The shadow is just as emotive as the figure

I really like this, the shadow really adds to the image. Nice job

Wonderful shot!

I love this shot and agree with Casablanca @casablanca it does look quite sad. This is how I felt when I got up this morning. Had a splitting headache, but a couple of Panadol and a cup of tea solved the problem. Out for lunch at a friends house today so that will cheer up the day. fav

I see sorrow too - I love the way you have captured the sculpture and shadow in the composition.
My get pushed partner challenged me to minimalist images too - I look forward to seeing what we both come up with.

WOW very nice and the shadow from it very cool too.

Well done; nice composition

I love this...simple it is.

Based on the "Thinker" statue I guess. I like the simplicity of it

Nice! Fav

Stunning in its simplicity ...... WOW

very thought provoking, after me having too many days like that in 2016/17.

Shadow is class

a nice simple image - great shadow

Another great image, although I do wonder if there is too much shadow on the object itself, or maybe I am seeing shadow all lover the place!!
posted October 3rd, 2017  
@sarahlth Sarah - haha - in this case you might be. I deliberately hiked up the shadows on the object as I felt it was "too" minimalist otherwise...

@peadar Yes I can see what you mean about it being minimalist.
posted October 3rd, 2017  
Very poignant capture. I like the shadow, adds depth whilst the minimalistic feel is maintained.

I had to look at this twice, at first I thought you had somehow balanced an egg.

Wonderful shadows. I wonder how it would look in black & white, but this is a really nice image.

When I saw this shot I immediately thought that it must be yours :-) Peter's style! Fav. (Did it requier a lot of thinking?)
posted October 4th, 2017  
@stimuloog Haha, it didn't really require a lot of thinking. Goodness, I didn't know I had a style, I wish I knew how I managed to do that!!! ;-)

@peadar shadows and mostly a white background :-)
