Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Minimalism/Maximalism
Most people know I like minimalism, especially using nature, but in particular trees. I started doing a series of photos of a Tuckaroo tree in my garden but I couldn’t get the feel I wanted for this theme.
I dug around my archives and folders to find what I wanted and hope this sequence works well.
Using a bit of a dead tree and a cloudy sky for dramatic effect
Much the same but this time using sunlight to stand out from the clouds
More of a She Oak and using the distant mountains as a background
Or going green with a solo tree in a paddock. Cattle tracks in the grass break up a total green scene
Going more maximalism with a fine Fig tree to showcase its richness of form and design
Again highlighting the burnt branches after a fire with new growth and colour. The maximalism of every surface covered with something
Do you regard this photo as minimalism or maximalism. The sky bathed in colour and trees in the distance made to look small
Perhaps this is the opposite with a tree in silhouette dominating the foreground and a strong sky fighting for recognition
The theory of maximalism in that every part of the mountains covered in trees even though there isn’t a chaotic array of colours but a subdued hue of blues
I must end on minimalism with a concurrence between a branch, a leaf and Our Moon
