This was outside a shopping mall and I zoomed in tight.

Is too minimalistic?

It is empty, not minimalistic.

Don’t know what you are after here, but the “fuzzy” light part of the image that runs diagnally through the image is distracting.

Fuzzy light? Where?

I like the image, but I'd invest some time in post to clean up the minor dark spots at the corners and on a few of the flat planes.

Not to minimalistic.... but the top is also too blown out. Top left corner looses all definition. Just a few tweaks to highlights would help. But nice idea.... like it.

I agree that this isn't quite minimalistic. Minimalistic art tends to have a very uncomplicated yet clear focus in the art. The empty space and lines focus the viewer's eyes to a certain point where there is a subject that is often slightly more complex. (flower, person, etc.)

This is borderline abstract and there is no real focal point. My eyes follow the pattern up till it is cut off and then starts again. It is an amazing photo in that it is has a highly aesthetically pleasing pattern.

It took my eyes a second to figure out what the lines are and it made me curious as to how it was created and what the shapes are. I like it, keep it up.

I like this shot. It catches my eye and draws me in.


Constructive criticism is always appreciated.
