+Martin Rak ...West Pier #1...

+Steve Blackwell Chesterman Beach #1

+Grant Murray Chesterman Beach 1

+Šárka Svobodová X

Minimal Monday Wrap up no 220

Hello everybody! I hope you had a fantastic weekend. I know I sure did. This was one amazing week for #MinimalMonday . Some beautiful work was submitted by you and I had a tough time choosing my favourite.

Gold Award
+Steve Blackwell Irrigation Pipes in Snowy Field near Strathmore, AB
Subtlety at it's best! Incredible photograph Steve. Beautifully balanced composition.

Silver Award
+Dominique Dubied The Visit
I love that fencepost in the foreground!

+Grant Murray Long Beach 3
_You seriously need to stop posting these beauties. Or I need to come out and photograph some of these scenes myself. ;) _

Bronze Award
+Martin Rak ...Winter Line...
This reminds me of a musical score. A decrescendo to be precise.

+Christof Teuscher Uphill
Love stuff like this.

+Alex Bihlo Somewhere in Saskatchewan
I am super attracted to scenes like these. I find immense beauty in the Prairie landscape. Well composed and spotlighted.

Minimal Monday Wrap up no 219

Here's this week's wrap up for the #MinimalMonday theme. If you wish to participate, please consider these wide guidelines. This is a landscape only theme. But I like to see your definition of what a landscape means to you. And the theme is all about simplification of form. Just share your photograph on mondays with the correct hashtag and tag me. Awesome! Oh and tell your friends about this theme. ;)

Gold Award

Bronze Award
+Martin Rak ...Sound of Silence...
Singular simplicity. And congrats on the Sony World Award Martin. Well deserved.

Minimal Monday Wrap up no 217

I hope everybody had a great weekend. I sure know I did. I was able to guide university students around in the cut blocks I've been photographing for the last year. The more I dive into this series, the more personal and the more meaningful this series is becoming for me.
Anyway on to this week's #MinimalMonday wrap-up.

Gold Award

What a beautiful sinister and dark rendition of your cover photo this is Michael!

Silver Award
+Šárka Svobodová Smrčky --- Small spruces
As usual, very tasteful work Sarka. Love it.

Bronze Award

Another killer photograph Grant. Well done on the subtle toning and simple composition.

I had Bjorn on the Minimalist Winter workshop a few weeks back. Good to see this photo up. ;)

Poor lonely stick.

That's it for this week boys and girls. See you again next week for another edition of #MinimalMonday

Minimal Monday Wrap up no 215

Another week, another wrap. FINALLY have time to do this thing. It's been a busy week. Wrapped up a 3-day workshop on Sunday with +Marc Koegel which went awesome. Had a day off on Monday where I did absolutely nothing. And then work exploded like crazy. And I did a photoshoot on Wednesday. Busy busy.
Hope you are all well and keeping busy too.

Gold Award
+Steve Blackwell Windmill in Snowy Field
So beautiful Steve. Not a ton of these stand alone windmills left around Calgary. I think I know this one very well.

Silver Award
+Šárka Svobodová Ostrov --- Island
_Killer photograph Sarka! Those clouds.... _

Bronze Award
+Grant Murray Alouette Lake 7 _I've never been a fan of toning and split toning but you are making me reconsider this opinion Grant. Very fond of the work you've been producing over the last few months._

+Martin Rak ...Orchard...
Great photo Martin.

+Daniel Schwabe The lonely cloud
I have no clue what I am looking at. It hurts my brain. But that's why it makes it a good photo. Well seen.

+Michael B. Stuart Moments in the Breeze
I wish more people would see subtleties like these.

+John Dusseault peaking through the mist
Putting nothing in this photograph that can ground it scale wise is a smart way of keeping your viewer engaged.

Great week again guys and girls. I feel very fortunate you are all still playing along. Thank you!
