Minimalism (as defined by 'Less is More...')
The essence of the image.
Everything that "doesn't matter" is stripped out, leaving only the focus, whether it be a shape or a color or an emotion. Simple in form (usually) but may be very complex in nature or in detail.
The "finest" examples of minimalism encompass all three to a degree - a clarity of imagery - a purity almost... nothing hidden, just an image laid bare.
"I've always loved the zen quality of minimalism. Submit your photos and invite your friends, family, contacts or any Flickr user whose photo you feel demonstrates excellent use of Minimalism." - MsCapriKell, pool creator.
