This was an interesting week. I found my ability to enjoy hampered by my self-imposed mission to be arbiter of negative space. I think there are many voters who feel that way about all challenges, like they are enforcing the challenge description. I like to avoid that stance whenever possible, and just use the challenge description as a starting point.

The reason I made an exception this week is that negative space is an important principle of composition, one that I think is often neglected and one that I wanted to use this opportunity to emphasize. In the process, I was sometimes too rigid and too harsh, and I'm sorry about that. But I also found myself learning about new possibilities for negative space.

A lot of people tried to convey emptiness. That is one of my favorite subjects, but it is not the purpose of negative space. Negative space is simply the counterpart of "positive space," in other words, the space taken up by your subject or by dominant elements of the photo. Therefore, in general, negative space requires a strong, well-shaped subject that is promininent within the frame... almost the opposite of what many people were doing!

and now for the Posthumous ribbons...

' . substr('//blackyak.com/dpc/bluepost.jpg', strrpos('//blackyak.com/dpc/bluepost.jpg', '/') + 1) . ' goes to ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' jjbeguin for this photo:

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/697/thumb/539609.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/697/thumb/539609.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Many of the photos, including my own, were just examples of negative space, whereas this photo is a masterpiece that just happens to utilize negative space. And not only in a literal sense of rich shapes between the hats, but also thematically: hats without heads, for example.

' . substr('//blackyak.com/dpc/redpost.jpg', strrpos('//blackyak.com/dpc/redpost.jpg', '/') + 1) . ' goes to ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Jutilda for this photo:

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/697/thumb/539025.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/697/thumb/539025.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

The string substance in the foreground of the image... is that positive or negative space? This silhouetted human shape is what we normally consider the subject and the area around it is the negative space, but here the negative space is falling apart. Does that make it positive? We are left on some sort of conceptual boundary between the two.

' . substr('//blackyak.com/dpc/yellowpost.jpg', strrpos('//blackyak.com/dpc/yellowpost.jpg', '/') + 1) . ' goes to ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/31.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/31.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Dan_Cottle for this photo:

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/697/thumb/536701.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/697/thumb/536701.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

You can call this a sentimental choice. :) With the subject blending into the background, I wonder if the "positive space" is not the subject but rather the highlights. I like being forced to think, but mostly I chose this because I find it so disorienting. As I wrote in the photo's comments, it's like he's riding into a world of stars. But to keep to topic, this disorientation is achieved through use of negative space.

I just don't see how the foot is on the photo.. been staring at it for 5 minutes.. I can't see the heel, a little toe at the right? I just don't get it, haha!

Aren't just the ball of the foot and the toes on the ground, whilst the heel is in the air, hidden inside the baggy jeans... If that makes sense.

This one for neg space.... I didn't see it until he PM'd me and I believe most thought the same... that this didn't have negative space but look for the rest of her body in the negative space.... as soon as you see it it's obvious but, during voting I didn't and couldn't figure out what those objects had to do with eachother for the life of me...

Yeah, I saw that last night. I'm thinking I'd like to say, "You're funny!", but then, most of the time you seem so serious. Was it a compliment? Hmmmm. :)
