There are indeed some beautiful photos amongst the 20, but “examples of ‘Minimalist’ Photography”? No. No such thing. There are some well framed shots with simple or single subject matter, but minimal. No…

Number 3 of the first set {Bernhard Quade} is strong but the others in that set are just OK.

I like the ship in the second set {David Burdeny}

And although it’s been done a million times, I like the last shot of the Flickr series – the one of the jetty.

With a cloning brush there is no dust on the internet.

OK – second comment, and I’d like some feedback if possible.

I’m not crazy about the second photo from the bottom.

It’s the one of the stone jetty called ‘Lough Erne Jetty’.

And I think the reason is that the end stone is lying across the frame, so it is like a stop sign that prevents my eye from feeling comfortable moving further into the frame.

Thoughts ? (Apart from ‘you pretentious idiot’)

A nice selection – I particularly like the Lonely Water series, never come across that guy’s work before. Also ‘The Pool’ (the shot of the jetty/steps rising out of the water) is really atmospheric.

Just recently I posted some minimalist images from Michael Kenna, take a look here:

Whoa, man, this stuff, man. There’s like, nothing there, man.Yet, at the same time, it’s like everything is there. This changed the way I looked at photography, man. Power in a lack of numbers, as it were.
