    Inspired by some of the wonderful minimalist images we seen on the thread - you know who you are ;) I thought i'd have a bash myself. So to kick this thread off, here are mine from a walk along Aber's south beach.

    :laugh: Brilliant!!

    The disease is obviously spreading!!

    Last 3 for me, the seagull one is great, nice angles.

    Great placement of the rowers in the second and the people in the third.

    Great stuff :smashin:

    I'd have concentrated on the sign and the door to the right on the first one though ;)

    Good idea for a thread Liquid. I like your gull shot, here's another minimalist gull, taken at Aldeburgh:

    I'll have to try out some of this 'Minimalism' (you didn't spell that drunk ;) ) stuff...

    [​IMG]
    I'm really liking this shot, surely the Horizon is edited to please Steve though??


    [​IMG]
    Also really like your latest not so minimal one steve, the combination of texture and colour makes a really interesting shot.

    I'll be back with some later....

    Yes, It is in this shot - I've since re edited it for fotolia with the original horizon and a little more colour saturation.

    Maybe this isn't strictly minimal, but hey...
    This was the first night I got my Cokin polarizer which for some reason on this shot has made the bulding site muck in the background into a pleasingly complimentary blue!

    This one is quite minimal.

    A polariser would have made a lot of difference here, but I've just had to make do with upping the saturation in PS, and cloning some dust spots off.
