View Full Version : A few which almost got away

I took these as part of my attempts at minimalism. When I looked at them on the computer though I decided they didn't really fit the theme. So rather than waste them.... :D
The office block where I work.
A wall on the ground floor. I wasn't too sure about the 'blue cast' to this one but in the end I decided I quite liked it.
Another office block
C&C very welcome!
PS, now I've previewed the post, I'm wondering if I should have added borders?

Love them Kate!!! I'm not sure either if they are minimalist but they sure are abstract! My favourite would have to be the last one! I just like the reflections and the curves, Borders would be nice but they are great with out!
PS Gee my post count has risen over the last few days LOL :D :D :D

LOL Scott! You're addicted! Didn't anyone warn you? It's a well known problem here at Wetcanvas, and happens to us all :D
Thank you for the kind comments btw. I thought they were quite abstract too which is why I didn't put them in the Minimalism project :D

Nice to see where you spend your time, Kate. I particularly like the last shot....the curves and lines and reflections make for a very interesting composition.

Kate, these are all just wonderful! But I adore the second one. Love the lines, light and shadow, comp and that creamy, delicious blue! I could be wrong, but I'd have been tempted to post that one as minimalist. :confused: :D

Kate, WOW these are soooo fantastic....you really have an eye for lines and shapes. I think the second one could qualify for minimalism..especially if you cut off the small dark area at the bottom. It sure doesn't look like a wall at all, maybe some drawers...funny how the eye gets fooled by size.
I totally love the last one it is fantastic with the curves and the colors. I cropped out the last two rows of windows on the left and really like that look too....great photo :clap: :clap:

I liked the third one Kate it has a bit of the optical illusion about it. Can you post one of the pub in Terminal 2!!

Thanks for the replies everyone.
Joy, I think my favourite is the last one too. Like Chris say's it's a bit like an optical illusion. (off to terminal 2 today Chris to get your photo of the pub!)
Kathy, I can see your crop would work equally well. Glad you liked it.
Eileen, I wondered and wondered whether the second one could be classed as minimalism. In the end I decided the shadows and reflections made it a bit too busy.(which of course is just my opinion and I freely admit to knowing nothing about minimalism, lol) I did like the photo itself though, so I'm really pleased you did too.
Thanks again everyone.

Great shots Kate--just the kind that I passed over for the minimalism project. Although a closer crop of #2 would qualify. Really like all of them. Minimal is kind of hard to get your head around isn't it. But we get some good photos trying. :clap:
