Scott Jarvie382,639POST YOUR GOOGLE+ ALBUM OF PICTURESIt's been very very popular event in the past and I'm finally doing it again tonight.This time it will be more organized, more heads up than usual and even a live event.SHARE AN ALBUM/GALLERY LINKIt's simple and easy but a lot of work and very fun for all.You simply share an album here and I'll be going through every single one of the albums.Then I will +1 the pictures in the album that I'm really drawn to.BENEFITWell it's simply if you'd love to know which pictures I like most. I always loved knowing which pictures people really love of mine because it helps me have an eye for which pictures are best received. It's a huge part of becoming a better photographer in my opinion.To be able to put out great art is first to know what great art looks likeON AIRThis will be something new... I'm going to go through all the albums Live, Online as an On-Air hangout.I'll talk a little bit about what I'm doing.If the show goes well I'll keep it for later viewing on YouTube... if the recording isn't great I won't.SPECIAL GUESTBecause I want to have an outloud conversation about what and why I'm doing things I will have my good friend and great photographer +Susan Marinello on the show to facilitate the discussion.She will also visit a lot of these albums and +1 pictures as well.We ask that everyone add her to a circle ... not just because she's awesome (though that's reason enough) but so that if any of these albums are by mistake limited access she will have access.DIRECTIONS1. Paste a link of a Google+ image gallery2. Put a title or description of what we'll see in the album3.  IMPORTANT If you post a link you hereby give us permission to use a screenshare view of all those pictures and perhaps your profile in a recorded Youtube video.4. Make sure the album is Public access5. Add +Scott Jarvie  +Susan Marinello to your circles6. Return the favor. Take some of the other people's albums and +1 some of your favorites.IMPORTANTIt bears repeating:If you post a link you hereby give us permission to use a screenshare view of all those pictures and your profile (maybe) in a recorded Youtube video.DShare your Album- A Jarvie PlusOne Critique Experience2012-09-12 05:30:00148

Gailen Mapes67,400Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera D-F - 4 of 31Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members. These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity). Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to September 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting August 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag and sort by "recent."I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +2014-09-04 10:21:561557012

EDZUL FREDY KRISNAWAN0This is My Nucleus CircleIt is made up of a variety of people from all interests and backgrounds and a few pages. There are a handful of newbies as well. The common theme is that my interactions with these people has been for the most part all positive.Want to be added to the #hyperball?1) Add me to your circles.2) Share, +1, and Comment This Share3) Reshare anything that interests you on my stream (profile) from today or the rest of this week.People inspire you, or they drain you - pick them wisely.  - Hans F HansenThis is a positively charged circle filled with positive people; if a few "neutrons" find their way into my circles, they will likely not be in them for long - I have no room or time for negative people in my circles or in my life. I have all of these people in my circles and all of them - except one but I believe that is a mistake due to domain issues - have me circled as well. There are more that I wanted to include but had to cut due to the limitation of how large a shared circle can be on G+. The limit is 500 and you are able to increase it to 501 if you include yourself.» I cut anyone who hasn't been active on GPlus over the past 2 weeks although you are still in my circles - I realize people take vacations!» I also cut a few that I don't yet know very well or who fell to the very bottom when sorted by relevance.» I cut most pages as I prefer to share circles filled with people.» I didn't include a few friends of mine that have asked me not to share them in circles. If anyone in this circle would prefer not to be included in any additional circle shares, let me know and I will respect your wishes.This is a good circle to add and share.If you encounter any spammers in my circles, let me know. Bear in mind that some newbies do not realize or intend to spam and may just need to be told. I am going to be a guest on the following hangouts on air this month:10.11.2013 (Fri, Noon EST) - The +Mia Voss Show10.16.2013 (Wed, 6PM EST) - +Jason T.

Gailen Mapes65,674Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera  D-F - 4 of 30Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members.           These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity).       Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to July 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting June 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag and sort by "recent."I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +2014-07-05 02:02:08155305

However, there is no guarantee that we'll include them in a future circle.   We want to maintain the quality of this circle.  Therefore, we will only add photographers that we would want to see in our own personal stream. Many of the photographers in this circle are well known so we are particularly interested in hearing your choice of photographers with fewer than 15'000 followers.  We would like to give them the opportunity to gain more views for their work.Please plus, comment and share.  This circle has no requirements for future participation but your support and encouragement is appreciated.I have chosen the name of the circle carefully to try to accurately represent the quality of the work by the photographers in it.  ValidationThis circle was very heavily vetted.  We have looked at each photographer's stream and decide that we would like to include them in this circle. +Charles Lupica (me), +Scott Thomas and +2014-06-27 17:39:05116934956

New blog post where I'm talking about how photograph is such a mental game to play. I talk about the plateau of mediocrity and making progress as an artist.

How about THAT for a #minimalmonday  wrap up! That was some amazing work my friends. 

Well tomorrow I am leaving for Newfoundland. Keep posting your photos. I don't know if I will be able to do the wrap up from the iPad but we will try. If not, I will do the missing wrap ups when I am back. 
See you in a bit.___

Hidden Lake, Alberta

Remember a few posts down, I talked about my one hike this summer (I usually don't really hike). Here's another one from that day. This is Hidden Lake above Lake Louise with Redoubt Mountain in the background. Well, it's on the other side of the 'touristic' side of town. What a gorgeous area this was. And we had it all to ourselves! Definitely worth the trip.

When I was processing this negative last night I couldn't help but notice how KILLER of a big print this must turn into! So if you feel like you are in need of some new wall art, check out the website. I feature it there prominently.

Age of Days promo shoot

Here's something different. Last year (or was that 2 years ago already) I did a photoshoot with rockband Age of Days down in Drumheller. In the end, one of the photos was used as their album cover and material was used in the iPhone app and in promotion collateral throughout the years.

https://itunes.apple.com/ca/album/radioactivity/id621858630

The guys loved it that much that recently they asked me to do another shoot for them. I happily obliged. Time to refresh. This time I told them I really wanted to do B&W photos. The band looked forward to whatever I was going to do.

In the end I took some good old fashioned Tri-X 400 and my medium format camera, some HC-110 and gave it a gentle 2 stop push. It was an intense little session but I loved every minute of it.

Give them a listen! And give them a like and let me know what you think of the photo.

Tree and Birdhouse

There was a ominous vibe the night I photographed this. It was raining lightly and all I could hear was the rustling sound of the wind blowing through the leaves of the tree.

Sunset over Fish Creek

Here's another one from a few weeks ago. Taken from the same road as the previous photo of Fish Creek I shared earlier.
Just after I made the exposure a truck rolled up and another photographer got out. We had a great little chat. When he looked over the lenses and camera I was using he said he had no idea how a LF camera worked. So I insisted he put his head under the dark cloth while I showed him the movements.
He came out with a big smile. Who knows, he might pick up LF photography in the future.

Fallen

Today I present a more intimate, a more quiet scene than the previously shared photographs.

Scenes like these just attract me so hard. It is hard to explain. I guess I love the unseen, the hidden, the past by.

I had to park the truck right next to a fence (in the ditch) to be able to get the vantage point I needed (after I climbed in the bed) to frame this scene as I envisioned it. It was a bit of trial and error. If you follow me on Facebook then you've seen the behind the scenes shot of this setup a couple of weeks ago. If not... here's the link https://www.facebook.com/odutrephoto

Corral Creek

Earlier this summer I went for a hike. YES a HIKE. I normally stay close to the car but when an old friend from Belgium his daughter (who is into photography) asked me to meet up, I thought... why not.

So we went for a hike to Hidden Lake above Lake Louise, Alberta. What an absolutely gorgeous place. Plus it is touristically a non-event apparently because we had the lake all by ourselves. Except for the thousands of mosquitoes. That don't care you have mosquito spray on or not. They'll dive bomb you anyway.

Maybe that was the reason the place was so deserted... :)

Lonesome Prairie

I had a blast last weekend. Skies and light was absolutely awesome. I was in an area previously unexplored and was photographing to heart's content.
This was a tricky scene to photograph. I absolutely wanted light on that tree. I had to wait for it. I stood there for at least 30-40 min until everything lined up. Light, no wind, clouds, ... Patience is a virtue.

Fish Creek

Last week I drove around in, what was for me, an unexplored area SW of Priddis, Alberta. I got to say it, I might have fallen in love with the terrain around there. Rolling hills, creeks everywhere, lots of sloughs, and lots of trees.
There was one road in particular that I loved driving on. And that was Coalmine Road W. If you are in the neighbourhood, you should give this road a try!

Minimal Monday Wrap Up no 139

A VERY slow week this week here at #minimalmonday  . You guys knew it was a monday right? :p I've seen some photographs come through without the appropriate tags. Sad to say but those will be not considered for the wrap up nor for the chance to be publicized in +Stark-Magazine . Make sure to publicly share your photo with the #minimalmonday  tag and to also tag me.

It's tough to say but +Frank Hoefs your photo was definitely a top 3 choice. But it wasn't tagged properly. So – I have to be hard here – I can't consider this photo. I'm really sorry.

New BIJOU Prints

I had some questions recently on why I print at the sizes that I print at (16x20", 24x30" and 32x40") and why I don't bother doing smaller sized prints.
Well. I love printing BIG. That's one. There is something about a big print that I really like. But, due to the interest, I started thinking about doing some smaller sized prints as well.

As a result I launched the 'Bijou' prints yesterday. These are small 8x10" prints that are equal in quality as my big prints. They would be a perfect addition for anyone's personal collection. The prints are unframed and not matted but are dry stamped and signed on the back just as my big prints.

Take a look. At $60 CAD you will see that they are very competitively priced. But here's the kicker. FREE WORLDWIDE SHIPPING IS INCLUDED! I must be nuts...

Very excited to announce this new opportunity for all participants of the weekly #minimalmonday theme.

From now on, all award winners go into a monthly pool where both +Jason Lowry and I will pick one monthly winner. That winner will have the option to get the chosen photo published in Stark Magazine.

Since photographers are always on the lookout in ways to show their work, we thought this would be a perfect opportunity for you to play along with the theme.

Oli

We are always seeking opportunities to promote artists, so we are stoked to announce a partnership with +Olivier Du Tré .  Oli has literately spent hundreds of hours promoting artists on Google +.  We are in the business of promoting artists so working with Oli just makes sense.

How it works [we love simplicity]

Upload an image [Theme is Minimal Landscape] each Monday to Google+ and tag it #minimalmonday   AND include Oli’s name +Olivier Du Tré 

Each week Oli reviews the tagged images and announces 3 winners, Gold, Silver and Bronze.  From these 12 winners for the month, the Publisher  of +Stark-Magazine  of in collaboration with Oli will select a winner to be published in the next Issue.  There is an new opportunity to get published each month!

This opportunity begins Monday so get ready!  The winning entry from month 1 will be published in the October Issue.

Don’t worry, nothing gets published without the permission of the artist and of course, publication is optional :)___Very excited to announce this new opportunity for all participants of the weekly #minimalmonday theme.

Homestead

Here's one from last winter. (I know, I'm a bit late)

I took just 1 photo during the minimalist workshop Marc Koegel and I set up in March of this year. I believe workshops are all about YOU getting the shot and not ME getting the shots I want.

Homestead

Here's one from last winter. (I know, I'm a bit late)

I took just 1 photo during the minimalist workshop Marc Koegel and I set up in March of this year. I believe workshops are all about YOU getting the shot and not ME getting the shots I want. But this was too good to pass up on so I took it. But while I was making it I explained a brief version of my approach (and the zone system) to 4 of our students. I let them look under the dark cloth as well.

Hill

I know I haven't been sharing many photo's over the last 6 months or so. But I am still going at it. Don't you worry. I just lack the means to scan my 4x5 photos. I've been meaning to buy a new scanner. But for now I am manually scanning in sections and stitching these parts together. Big downside is dust since I am directly scanning on the glass of my V600. Not the best of options I know.

Anyhow. So here's a photo of a random hill I took about a month or so ago. I developed the negative over the weekend.

This is FP4+ (rated at 80) in 1:4 DD-x at N+1. I placed the grass in the foreground (shadow) on Zone III, and the sand (foreground) fell on Zone VI. I used a red filter in this one too. Contrast of the negative is really nice. A little burning of the sky and a slight overall contrast adjustment was needed but that was it. The area on the... more »

Contrast of the negative is really nice. A little burning of the sky and a slight overall contrast adjustment was needed but that was it. The area on the bottom of the hill that is slightly lighter in colour was due to the fact that the grass was lighter over there. Probably due to the fact that water runs down the hill there and the area is slightly wetter than the area surrounding it.

#minimalmonday  wrap up no 130! One hundred and thirty. That's crazy! That's exactly 2.5 years according to my math... That's a good stretch of time for any online themes. Online,... where things change every time you look away from the screen. :D

Winter Finale

I know, meteorologically, summer started a few days ago. What the heck am I doing with a winter photograph. Right?!

I haven't gotten around developing some of my winter photographs yet. Those are still in the fridge waiting for me.

A few of them I have processed already. Here's a group of trees that has eluded me in recent years. Every time I took a photo something went wrong. I finally got something worth keeping.

Lower Kananaskis Lake and Opal Range

This is from a while back. I photographed this together with +Bernardo Möller . You can see his photograph here: https://plus.google.com/114392797573764577387/posts/8F6LFq1Dx7a

I measured the light as followed. The trees on the right and the foreground dark ice was placed in Zone III (I lightened the ice up a tiny bit in post). The cloud in the middle was placed on Zone VI. With the sunlit snow on the peaks at VI 1/3. The foreground snow fell on zone VI. Therefore I developed N+1.

4x5 Delta 100, 1/60 @ ƒ22 1/3
I didn't write down the lens. But I presume this was with the Fujinon 90mm wide angle.

Deforestation No6

Continuing my series on the clear cutting/tree harvesting close to my home.

This is such a multifaceted photograph. Very layered both in composition as in story.

The trees in the back fell on Zone III. The sky with the filter became a VI and was very light blue (the filter darkened it a bit). The trees on the ground where overall a zone V with the brightest areas (the faces of the cut trees in sunlight in the foreground) to be zone VII.

Minimal Monday Wrap Up no 124

Hey it's Thursday! Time to do the wrap up for this week's #minimalmonday  !

My fav of the day goes this week to +Eric Fredine and his subtle yet masterful photograph of Iona Beach. What I really liked about this was the monotone feeling of this photograph, the details in the foreground, the glare on the water. The veil of daylight. Lovely high key photograph Eric. And I like that 'thing' in the water. It's like a snake on the prowl.

Good photo by +Greg Mills as well this week. Great detail in the rocks, water and sky. Great to see you not using a too long of a long exposure. It would have yielded a completely different photograph. One thing I would do differently (I talk about this a lot) is let that rock touch the horizon line. You created an unnecessary tension point. 
https://plus.google.com/101113091420824726764/posts/45Kne7axsF4

This photo by +Alexander S. Kunz could lead to an interesting discussion about foreground. How much or how little foreground is necessary to make a foreground work and what do you put in your foreground to make that work. You see, I think the photo is there if you crop out the rocks on the bottom. I see 4 bigger rocks that are making a circle around the standing position of the viewer, making a barrier and locking them in. A barrier that intervenes with the ability to further explore the photograph. Also is this photograph about the rock in the distance or the rocks in the foreground? It's a bit too busy for my taste. Crop it square or 4x5 horizontal around the shark fin and you're in business. Or crop out the shark fin all together and make the photograph all about the rocks in the foreground. I don't find the combo working too well. BUT it is a well processed photograph.
I want to hear what everybody thinks about this. Am I weird? Again I am not dissing Alex. Just trying to start a discussion.
https://plus.google.com/110486517623939606418/posts/Uw2hYvCNktL

The same discussion about composition we can have about the square photograph by +Gerard McGrath . It is a very bottom heavy photograph. Would you think a little bit more foreground, a step to the left and a slightly lower position would make this a better photograph> Or not? I think it would. What would it do? It would separate the two left rocks better. It would place these rocks higher in the water and would make it less bottom heavy. Again... what are your thoughts?
https://plus.google.com/117334967857829202117/posts/3V4eR9C14qT

YES +Bernardo Möller! This is a killer photograph. Who cares you had to jump through hoops in the processing department to get this? It's awesome! LOVE the added grain too because it emphasizes the texture in the concrete.

The Grandfather Tree

It's been a while since I shared a new photo.
I still photograph. Don't worry about that. I stepped it up to 4x5 and loving every minute of it. I'm just even more selective than before with the medium format camera.

I've also keeping myself busy testing my Delta 100 and FP4+ films in my preferred DD-x developer and putting these test sheets under the densitometer. The results where fascinating. But I now know everything I need to know about development for these 2 films.

About this photo.
If I recall correctly (I don't have my notes with me) I placed the shadowed bark on zone IV, highlighted bark (on the right, and the foreground root) fell on V 1/3. The illuminated patch of ground on the left fell on VIII 2/3 with the darkest areas (being the shadowed areas between the roots) on II 2/3.

The illuminated patch of ground on the left fell on VIII 2/3 with the darkest areas (being the shadowed areas between the roots) on II 2/3.

Processing was minimal. I burned in the edges and background forest a bit. Did a slight overall contrast adjustment. And highlighted the bark of the tree a bit.

This is FP4+ (rated at 80 instead of 125) in Ilford DD-x 1+4 at 20C. I developed this N-1 (to get that sun patch under control).___

Here's a little behind the scenes photograph from an outing this morning/afternoon.

Three weeks ago I had no clue this tree existed this close to where I live. It's literally in the ravine across my street. It was +Kurtis Kristianson that asked me where this tree was whilst showing me a picture of it. I gasped. What?! Where?! How did I miss this. This is in Cochrane?!

So today I loaded a few holders with the freshly tested fp4+ and started my search for it.

Yup I found it alright. I took 2 photographs of this tree and 1 of the tree you see in the picture in the background to it's left.

Just finished developing these negs in DD-x and they look great.

I'm biased when it comes to scenes that are local to me. +Bernardo Möller posted a beauty of Lake Minnewanka in Banff. I've seen this tree many times and my buddy +Paul Zizka has a stunning photograph with this tree, an owl and aurora in the background. I've looked at this tree on some occasions and always knew I wanted to photograph it. Bernardo beat me to it. Last time I didn't because Paul just made his photograph. There aren't a lot of different compositions out there with this tree. The terrain dictates us where to stand. Well done Bernardo. Love this one!

Originality. It's a tough aspect of what we do. +David Orr posted just that this week. A composition I have not seen too often before and therefor comes across as fresh.

OMG  I'm swamped. Preparing something I can't talk about yet until september-ish. Plus work picked up like nuts.
So now it is FRIDAY and I'm just going to do a very quick recap because I simply don't have more time.

'Regular' +Bernardo Möller added a beauty this week too. Love the movement in the seagulls. Love the grain in this photo as well. Good separation between the rock and water/horizon too. Big thumbs up!

+Marek Rak submitted a photograph that makes me think of the lighthouse series by my friend +Marc Koegel . Dark, moody, ominous and somber looking photograph (which is great!). Nice cloud motion that draws you into the lighthouse. Thanks to +Quincy Jefferson for the tag.

I'd like to share this one too by +Andy Gray . Very ethereal looking photograph. Love the separation between the two rocks that was created by the splashing water. Well seen!

And finally I want to show you this photograph by +Simon Williamson . Dramatic!

Minimal Monday Wrap up no 120

It's Thursday and I'm only now able to do the wrap up. So very sorry about the delay friends.

Great qualitative week yet again. I feel like I'm saying this week after week but it the truth. You guys keep pushing the bar up higher and higher. In the process, you teach me (and others) valuable lessons.

The 'fav of the day' award goes this week to +José Luís Costa for his superb 'cloudy nike effect'. Second week in a row where a 'non regular' gets the prize. ;) It's a great seascape. Love the light. Love the contrast in the dark ocean. Love the sun rays (looks indeed like the +Nike logo).  Well composed. This one is a keeper José!

+Frank Daniel Brubakken was early to the party this week! He shared this last Thursday! :) It is a very beautiful, subtle coloured, long exposure square. I can almost smell the seaweed from here. I wished there was a little more separation in between the rocks though.

When +Marc Koegel and I did the winter workshop last March, I told him that there's a photo in that quonset location we went to. I'm super happy that +Bernardo Möller FOUND the photo I had in my head for this quonset. But now I need to find another quonset! :) Very nice light on the curved aluminum roof! Great processing too with subtle gradients to keep the eye locked in and a good 4x5 crop.

Benji (+Benjeev Rendhava) posted an interesting seascape as well. The motion in the flags is wicked. The curvature of the sticks is enough to suggest to my eyes to keep wandering around the sticks in a circular motion without loosing attention and wander off the frame. Of course the subtle burning of the corners helps this as well. Thumbs up Benji!

Brilliant photograph by +Simos Xenakis this week. Moody. Almost gloomy and grim rendition of a simple subject. It feels like this was photographed in subtle moonlight. This is VISION! Love it!

Minimal photography is often 'done' in B&W but working in colour can be beneficial too. Take this photo by +John Dunne for example. There's no mistake that the lighthouse (and not the island with the lighthouse) is the subject here. Love the clouds that direct the eye towards the lighthouse. And the water that mimics these lines. The movement of these two secondary subjects (clouds and water streaks) visually pushes this island to the side. And that's OK. The composition is still balanced.

I love trees. Every photographer loves trees. This little tree is a special one +Bernd Walz . Keep it close to your heart. This is a scene that can be photographed year round, with good results! Very nicely done.

And finally a little intimate photograph by +Garry McCarthy ! This is one heck of a photograph. Beautiful tonalities. Beautiful curves. I think I'm in love!

That was it for this week! Two things I'm keeping an eye out for next week:
- will another 'non regular' scopp up the main prize?
- will the bar be raised higher yet again?

Happy Easter to all! May you kill many chocolate bunnies. I Hope your Easter is eggstra special! ;)___

Minimal Monday Wrap Up 119

What a week what a week. A tremendous amount of submissions! Quality submissions. So it's a bit heartbreaking for me to only feature a small selection of work that I liked.

Man I had a very touch time deciding who I'd pick for the fav of the day this week. I finally settled on +Simon Williamson 's photograph. Such a peaceful photograph yet very powerful. Maybe the water is a little too gray but that's just a small detail that can be fixed rather quickly. The photo resonated with me and somehow reminded me of a series Ansel once did. Looking forward seeing the final of this once Simon returns to his calibrated computer. This photograph has fantastic potential.

+Toby Trueman added a very moody photograph in this week's mix. Sometimes, we photograph light. And only light. Like in this photograph for example. This is all about the sliver of light behind the shape of the mountain. Drama!

Simple symmetrical photograph by +Martin Rak this week. Great detail in the concrete. Emptiness sounds about right. I feel the quietness and freedom.

The same feeling I get from +Simos Xenakis . This was a long time favourite of mine during the day. Love the hint of the island in the background. Not sure what the line is to the right of the structure. Clone that out. I like the juxtaposition of the 'thing' and the island. The line ads just a little bit of distraction for me.

Stunner by +Grant Murray this week too. Minimalism at it's best. Again same comments here. Love the juxtaposition between fore- and background. Also like the nature vs man made subject tension. Very nice!

+Bernardo Möller shared another photo from the minimalist winter workshop +Marc Koegel and I set up last March. I'm very pleased that Bernardo got something out of these trees worthwhile sharing. Great to see the trees disappear in the background. And yes 4x5 format! (you see Marc how nice that works < inside joke). Soft gradients at the top and bottom keep the eye locked in on the trees.

Right on +Johan Peijnenburg! Very very nice photograph. Poles in snow always work. Maybe a few steps to your left could have opened them up a little but I'm glad to see you emphasized the length of the poles by choosing for a vertical composition. Thumbs up!

And finally...

We have discussed this a few times before already but minimalism doesn't automatically have to translate into long exposure and black and white photography. Sure those things sometimes help out a situation but they aren't necessities. Proof of that concept this week was provided by +Anne Abernathy . A very simple morning photograph. The trees are almost like a brush stroke to me. The blue light just ads to the overall mood of this photograph.
