New Minimalism challenge - New Format!

June 12th, 2019
Thank you @kali66 for hosting the previous minimalism challenge on “mini-street”. And thanks to all of you who participated, voted and commented!

In a recent discussion about this challenge, it was decided to slightly change the format. Instead of a rotating “mandatory” theme (urban, light/shadow, street, texture/form, sea/land/cityscape), the challenge will be generic and open to all “minimalism” entries. The winner of previous challenge can suggest a theme, but this will be “optional” (as source of idea/inspiration only).

Regarding “minimalism photography”:

Many definitions & examples of minimalist photography 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. Keep effects and processing to a minimum also :o)

The suggested (non-mandatory) theme for this first challenge is “edge”. A clear edge between two surfaces with uniform color offers good opportunity for a minimalism photography (e.g. the edge of a building with concrete on one side of the edge, a blue sky on the other side). Having an object on the edge, and using a clean background provides also opportunity fro minimalism photography.

So the challenge starting today is open to all “Minimalism” entrees.

tag = minimal-01

The challenge begins 12 June 2019 and is open for entries until 02 July 2019. Shots must be taken within this time frame. A voting will take place shortly after. The winner will then host the next minimalism challenge
