This round's theme is MINIMALISM as selected by your reigning champion: @F.U.B.A.R. ! (along with a little community collaboration)

This topic can be interpreted as you see fit. We think it provides ample opportunity for interesting photographs, as it is a pretty broad and abstract topic.

Submissions must be original photographs, with or without minimal pre or post editing.

Submissions are now open! Take some photos, or select an existing original photo of yours, and submit it! Studies show that the more entries we get, the more minimal the remaining presence of COVID-19 in the world will become.

Previous thread here

Win the contest and earn a new custom profile title in time for Spring's re-emergence. With your new title you can make sure that 2021 is far less sucky than the Year of the Dumpster Fire.

Submit as many entries as you want and get feedback on them. If you submit multiple photos and do not specify which one you want to go with, the most recent will be chosen for voting. Please be aware of when the contest will close, it will be announced ahead of time. Once the final entries are put into the first post and voting is opened, we cannot change your entry.

I'll probably work on finding a properly sized USB cable and get some of the macro photographs I have taken recently with my macro lens. :)
Finally.. 🤤, last round totally without sunsets (and/or sunrises) was unbearable, now I can relax..

I'm sure somebody has a overall black (or white) minimalist cat? C'mon, nobody?

@Xorkoth Size doesn't matter, ...or does it? :oops:
