I knew this was yours and I preferred to to the other one that got the second place!Very nice, bravo!... But you got all these wonderful subjects all ready for you to shoot!... Not fair! :-)
A beautiful shot, Werli; much better than those that came before!..
wowwww! All those 5.0 votes!.... :-)
Tim A2: Of the 1st 21 entries, only one, possibly two qualify as both minimalistic and nostalgic, in my mind anyway, but then nostalgia is a personal thing. If I see a photo that reminds me of something I enjoyed last year, is that nostalgia? Just How far into the past must one go for a nostalgic subject? On the other hand, I think minimalism is pretty straightforward.
Very true, Tim. Although, I, personally, consider a little more than 1 or 2 entries as minimalist! :-)Also true that "Nostalgic" is something very personal and what is nostalgic for me may not be for you!But there is another thing that I think should also be mentioned. A plant is not a "Hand made Object", at least for me; unless it is made of plastic or something else! :-)
l_objectif: If this challenge is about "minimalism", I have the impression that some of us are still a little confused. I made a quick research and found this site quite interesting in understanding what minimalism is about:
Or maybe, it's me who is confused about the theme!?
Conan, I think your sample is right. But I see some other shots that are far from being "minimalist"!... So, I tried to understand and made some research. I thought my information above could help some to better understand as it helped me. Then, I thought maybe there is something else in the theme that I am not getting!
Wildbegonia: Congratulations my friend, a master photo. A complex subject, not to mention a not too clear description of what was wanted in this challenge, but you just perfectly framed the subject and the image. Technically perfect, so sharp, and as for its content, one can look at this image over and over and find different elements and levels of meaning each time. Even the choice of border completes it.
Much appreciated, dear Wildbegonia. As explained below, I really couldn't understand the theme, but I am lucky and glad that some liked this shot!As for the frame; like you, I am not very fond of it. But as it says; it is a "challenge" and I take it as such! :-)Kind Regards,
Wow... all those 5.0 votes!... No kidding!...LOL...
chrisby: Didn't actually expect anything less than first place! Great image!
Thank you, Chrisby. I wasn't even sure about the theme and had to change my entry several times!... I guess I did something right at the end! :-)
How come this guy receives 4 X or 5 x 5.0 votes in every challenge with mediocre shots?!...I wonder how many usernames he has!...

Stefano and tasad, thank so much for your kind comments!
I see lots of comments before even the voting is over, and response from photographer!...
Thank you very much, everybody for your votes and kind comments! :-)
Great shot! I love it! :-)
Is the smoke added via PP?
l_objectif: Is adding a smoke to a shot considered as "Composite"?...And, is adding a color to a B/W shot considered as "Full Colors"?Sorry for these silly questions; I am just confused and try to find something to enter!
Thanks for the link! Some superb shots!

l_objectif: Really?.... 5 X 5.0 ?....
Every single entry that followsr this one is much better than this one!... LOL...
Some of these shots don't have the title "on the photo itself"!... Maybe they should also be DQ?
Really?.... 5 X 5.0 ?....
