Highlight the Shadows

DSC_9672

By the very nature of photography, highlights and shadows are an integral feature in most genres of the art. In minimal photography, shadows can be used to very good effect as the subject of the image. In the above example, detail can still be quite clearly seen in the sunlit areas, while the shadows, which account for approximately 50% of the image, are almost completely detail free, eliminating distracting detail which could otherwise confuse the viewer.
