Revisiting your photo ages after the challenge. I have to say it is quite captivating. The small detail delights.

"WOW" tjis one is really a great example of minimalism, thats for sure.
The simplicity and simple arrangement suit this challenge perfectly. O also love the soft color tones used to complete this wonderful image..... This one goes into my favorites as a valuable lesson, in "Minimal editing".

Very nice shot. This has an almost desolate feeling to it.

I have searched through the challenge for those entries where the negative space is more than just a plain black or white backdrop because, whilst I think that technique often makes for some really strong and high impact images, Iím particularly drawn to entries where the negative space is relevant to the subject itself and actually contributes to the impact of the picture in a contextual as well as purely compositional way.

Although the silhouette is a little overly complex the wonderful natural light silhouette and expanse of beach are quite evocative and definitely set the scene.

Wonderful both for the challenge topic and the editing restrictions.

Very nice, not quite sure how you got this given the editing rules but I like it. Great negative space ith the white, and wonderful color transitions thru the lower part of the picture. - 8 -

Wow this almost has the visual look of some of those minimalistic vector art posters on travel or entertainment. Very simple and clean in presentation. The hazy yellow hues on the clouds in the background invoke the idea of a summer day. Coupled with the view of the sand, ocean, and windsurfer we get a very strong idea of a day at the beach on a hot summer day. The impression is very strong even though main element and supporting elements only make up 20% of the picture! Great job on this composition. My only critique is that the water surrounding the sand bar at the bottom of the picture detracts and takes attention away from the main focus and the supporting elements. That 'repetition' of water draws attention away from the ocean beyond. Framing the composition to have excluded that bottom sliver would have moved this from an 9 to a 10. Still it is a wonderful shot and should do very well.
