Talking Simple Theme - RED -

This was used in as an entry on another forum for 4/3rds owners...
The Post "21" inspired me to post a simple themed photo.

Nice pic :-)

I am a big fan of minimalism when it comes to photo composition. The eternal question is "What can I leave out?"

That is always a tough call. I have a on going theme of "Stairs" that the more I see the older homes and commercial buildings, the more interesting the stairs are.

Simplicity of the subject does make for better impact and composition.
What to leave out is a bit harder..Sometimes a "cloning tool" is needed to clean up the frame, because an object is unavoidably in the frame. Or a "Burn Tool" may work better to darken the unwanted area...In my photo above, I Darkened that little bush on the left side near the steps.

Try cropping a bit off the bottom and this gets really good.

I like the idea, well done
