Thanks for the kind comments everyone :)

I had plenty of pics to choose from.
Went with the posted version since I think it was more true to minimalism as I understood it and to the topic description. I'm pretty happy with the photo but would've liked the dark to bright light fall off gradient near the bottom right to have had a smoother transition. Dont think it has anything to do with shooting in JPG but perhaps the resizing method?

Here are some of the outtakes:

'' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/25000-29999/29011/120/464326.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/25000-29999/29011/120/464326.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Fantastic execution. Perfect DOF, light, focus, and balance. Should have placed a lot higher IMHO. Congratulations for what should have been a ribbon.

Great exemple of minimalism. Every thing is just in place... It should ribbon.

Elegance is the name of this photo.

Glad to see this among the top 10; can't believe it didn't place higher. Still my pic (post challenge) for the blue. ;-) Congrats.

Outstanding from both a technical standpoint -- excellent composition, exposure and b&w treatment (especially considering the ME rules this challenge) -- and from a subject standpoint. My only *10* thus far.

Great close up. The line leading up to the pen really draws the eye and creates a nice rhythm. The DOF is superb - really highlights the subject, but doesn't throw away the rest of the image. One of the best of this challenge, well done.
