Negative space does not need to be complicated or be represented with lop-sided imagery. Look at a photo. Identify the main subject of said photo. Anything that isn't the main subject is negative space.

But it is more complicated than this. Negative space is one technique and one can have a distinct subject with no negative space.

No, it's not.

Also you left out the part where I mentioned positive space; something you allude to. But it's a very simple concept.

Application can be more complicated than concept.

For instance, leading lines. They can be subtle background, they can be so strong as to be part of the subject or they can sit in between. And it is that space between that complicates the concept.
