New Minimalism Challenge

September 26th, 2019
My sincere apologies for not getting this post up sooner. I didn't realize my photo was even up for a vote. I was very surprised when I saw I had won the third challenge.
Thanks to Kim @genealogygenie) for reminding me I am the next host and for hosting the third minimalism challenge of the new generation. Thanks to all who participated, voted and commented. I am honored to host the next challenge.

The minimalist challenge starting today is the fourth one of the revamped generation. It is thus generic and open to ALL minimalist entries. The suggested optional theme is “Shadows"; this theme is not mandatory but can be used as a source for ideas and inspiration. Shadows can be found in nature, architecture, color, etc. Use your imagination and post early!

The challenge begins today, September 25, and is open for entries until Friday, October 11, 2019, until midnight in your time zone. Shots must be taken within this time frame. Voting will take place shortly after. The winner will then host the next round and will also propose an optional theme.

Regarding minimalist photography:

Many definitions & examples of minimalist photography are out there to consider. Here is a guideline : minimalism is indeed the art of less. As a life philosophy, minimalists focus on a few essential elements of life and cast unnecessary things aside. Same pretty much goes for this photography style.
Minimalism is a style employed by many 20th Century artists, using a minimum amount of components such as color, shape, line and texture to emphasize the subject matter. If you’d like some tips or to see some examples check out:

Keep effects and processing to a minimum also.

I hope you will enjoy this challenge. Looking forward to seeing your entries and hoping some newbies will join in too! for hosting the second minimalism challenge of the new generation.
