"Clouds over the Blue Ocean" I thought I would see what folks thought of this and the other blue only image! I shot this from the airplane coming into the Big Island in Hawaii and just love the blue tones of the ocean below with nice definition of clouds (remember, I like clouds!) The other image is quite minimalist and might be considered TOO artsy! Let me know what you think!
To quote my reaction to your "minimalist and might be considered TOO artsy": "Oh, dood." (I'm from San Diego) NO SUCH THING as too minimalist/artsy in photography. I LOVE that stuff. When I was in Tacoma at the glass factory/exhibit/museum there was a photographic exhibit by some Japanese man (forget name) that had lots of shots of lengths of droopy wooden fences knee deep in snow trailing off into white sky, or a lake shot where everything (sand, water, sky) is very subtly different via texture and TINY changes in grey/white shades. IT WAS HEAVEN. SO peaceful. Yes, I am a minimalist and specifically admire the bravery of people who zoom in on these simple landscapes that I think are uniquely beautiful, calm, and soothing. =) I love how in your shot you really can't tell where the clouds/sky end and where the water begins. NICE!!! =)
