52 Week Smartphone Challenge: 20 Negative Space

I sort of knew what ‘negative space’ was before it came up as the theme for Week 20 of the 52 Week Smartphone Challenge. However, I had to look it up to be sure.

And I’m not entirely convinced that this image – taking advantage of that special light you get when the low sun breaks through the clouds after heavy rain – is fully on point, but it is quite dramatic.

52 Weeks Photo Challenge: Week 31 – Empty Space

It’s good to have The Girl That Dreams Awake back and resuming her 52 Weeks Photo Challenge with the theme of ‘Empty Space’.

I do believe that sometimes less is more, and it isn’t always necessary to fill the frame with your subject.

And I particularly enjoy photographing fireworks: like snowflakes, every one is different. Some are best viewed in ‘full frame’, but with some thoughtful cropping a lot of empty space can enhance an image, as in this example.

It’s a rocket that was part of last year’s FĂȘte Nationale display in our local village. However, with a little imagination you could also see it as a picture of a sunrise, taken from outer (and therefore empty) space.
