    Booka has set a most interesting challenge based on the concept of "75% Negative Space". A classic example is this 1958 image "Canopy" by Saul Leiter:-

    You can read a little and see more images by this photographer here.

    This theme should set the creative juices flowing.

    Ooohhh... very different. I've always thought about doing one of these! Maybe this weekly challenge will finally push me to try one! :smile:

    Me too, I cannot guarantee the exact 75%, but I'll enter anyway:)

    Ooh, this should be a fun one. Saul Leiter is one of my current influences. His book Early Color is astounding.

    Some great images so-far.

    Just by way of clarification we will not get hung up on whether an image uses negative space or dead space or is in fact minimalist. Our interpretation for this WC will be pretty wide. Similarly I won't be using the vernier calipers and slide rule to check %ages. :biggrin:

    An article (dealing with logo design) that may help is here.

    I don't think I'll have a chance to go out for this challenge (Pacquiao fight tonight, which is always a big event in our household with bajillions of guests, and then Sunday family day), so I looked through my archives. This was taken with an old Olympus C765. :smile:

    Yesterday, no sun in the valleys but plenty on the mountain tops. From the Pilatus in Switzerland at 7200 feet.
