Welcome to Mini Challenge #127!

The theme is Minimal. Shots where what is not needed is taken away, or just not there. Really focused on the subject.

Mini challenge rules are here: http://www.dgrin.com/showthread.php?t=168929

This challenge will run from 8/30 @ 7:15am Central time to 9/12 @ 7:15am.

A few shots to get things started:

    Fun topic!! I'm not sure I have much for it though.

    Are these minimal enough?

    1. New Zealand Tea Tree bloom

    2. Kitten

    3. Butterfly on a Cosmos
    448130674_zpHYt-L.jpg

    I'll really have to look to see if I have anything else that might fit the theme better.

    I only had my 100mm lens with me when I visited this church. But this was to good to pass up.
    So it ended up being a 9 shot pano! :D

    2) Brodie. I used a Canon 135 soft focus lens at f2.8 then ran the shot through pixel bender.

    WOWZA, Jeromy! That shot (those shots?) are gorgeous. The stained glass is beautiful anyway, but you captured it perfectly. Love, love, love it. bowdown.gif

    Silverx80, I really had to look at mangled to figure out what it was. Very nice!

    Some really great shots already!! I'm probably stretching the theme, but I guess I'm considering the two dancers as one subject.

    Okay... the day job has finally slowed down enough for me to ease back into Dgrin... Here are my selections for "Minimal." For some reason, I tend to equate minimalism with B&W....

    I'm not so sure these are actually minimal, but at least they're minimalistic.
