Sometimes less is more, as Cee demonstrates this week in her “Compose Yourself Photo Challenge”, “Simplicity” edition. The “simplicity” challenge: Show us 4 to 6 photos that you have taken that are extremely simple. Show us your uncropped and unedited versions. Sharpening and saturation is allowed.

Here are my four simple originals:

For some additional fun:  Cropping: show us one before and after cropped simplicity photo.  Color vs. B&W: show us the same photo one color and one black and white photo.

Here’s my cropped photo. ( Click on any photo to see it larger.)

Here are the color and black-and-white versions.

  1. I love that very first one: it suggests sounds and movement of winds…not to mention the texture against fingers. Nice

    • Merci beaucoup (thus exhausting a too-large portion of my French.) I’ve loved those furry grasses every since I was little. I’d love to have some natural grasses in my yard one day when we have our own house, not a rental.

    I like the first photo, Janet. I took a very similar one yesterday afternoon.

    Hi Janet,
    This is a really great entry for this week. I even kind of like the “bee” photo and I don’t like bees at all. That is high praise from me. 😀

  11. Love that last bee! Picture perfect

  13. I do feel honored and grateful for your ongoing support and inclusion of your beauties in the Photo Rehab! Thank you.
