Minimalism - Visual Purity 1p.d.

Minimalism (wikipedia definition) .

Help me understand...

Hello all,

I’m not so much interested in challenging the moderators’ decision, as in understanding the definition of “Minimalism” used in the group. I posted this image, which was rejected:

I thought that it complied with the definition, so I would be interested to know why this ISN’T a minimalist image. It’s clearly a bottle, and there are no other distractions.

Many thanks
George

I don’t mean to be rude, but I don’t see what you’ve taken an image of. It looks like a hook but I cannot be sure. Maybe that’s the problem here.

Thanks Irena,
If you click on the thumbnail above you will see the bigger image. It’s the neck and outline of a blue water bottle. it seemed obvious to me but maybe it’s too abstract for other people… Is that the case?

yes, I clearly see a bottle, too .. and yes, in my opinion this could be a minimalist image .. :-)

Hi George, it looks minimalist to me…and I can also see a bottle :) It’s a great shot!

Thanks Ursula – That’s 2 for and 1 against so far… Any more thoughts?

Thanks George,
I can barely see it now, I’m surprised how others saw it and I couldn’t. For me this image would probably work much better on a larger scale than only viewing it on a small screen. Agree with all … it’s a nice and simple shot though.

I love this and I see what it is. Very minimalist too.

I am still waiting to be accepted after I posted one nearly 2 weeks ago. It got kicked out of the challenge because it wasn’t in the group. I guess.
