Weekly Photo Challenge: Minimalist

Forgive me if I have posted this previously, I feel I have but this weeks challenge asks for minimalist and this photo I feel gives it in bucket loads, ie a lot of negative space.  Whether this is good or bad is up to the eye of the beholder but I feel in this case it highlights the majesty of the sea and how small we are in comparison to nature.  the cityscape in the background gives scale to the rest of the scene but that is just my opinion.  What do you think?

  1. it is surprising to see a little person there in a majestic sea. And it is a pleasant surprise. Just like you said, we are so small.

  3. I agree with Tom… Great photo!!


  4. Love your interpretation, Karen. Just curious, and I know an extra click gives me the bigger picture, but do you intend such a small image in the post?

    • I didn’t really mean for it to be so small. I will try to make sure it’s a bit bigger next time. I do make them smaller to upload to wordpress but didn’t realise it presented as such. Duly noted 🙂 lol


  5. It could have been solitude too 🙂


  6. Very nice. The background definitely gives a sense of scale to this. Nicely done!

  9. This is stunning, Karen, really! Perfect balance of the distant skyline with the small surfer in the foreground – it depicts the vastness of the water (which I view as the negative space). Love, love, love it!
