Submit up to three (3) images relating to or displaying the essence of the theme. Minimalist photography is a style that has at its core the famous phrase: Less is More. And Minimalismo is a tip of the hat to our judge in Barcelona (Minimalism is Minimalismo in Spanish). Show us your best/less minimalist photos. Note: the judge will also be looking for images that illustrate the theme in an interesting way that engages the viewer; plus normal judging criteria of: originality and creativity, photo technique and/or quality, and overall artistic merit.
