    Okay but joking aside, I don't think the second one is on-topic.

    Angles in this context should be camera angles. By which we mean unconventional camera angles. That photo is taken flat-out. The first one is barely acceptable, but at least we can see the underside of the structure, making it a low-angle/low-perspective shot. The third one is not really at any kind of interesting point of view, so I think it doesn't count either.

    I'll come up with some examples.

    I thought they were referring to minimalism/current theme.

    The first photo can be considered as an example of minimalism because of the use of limited color and objects.
    The second one is a variation of Malevich's Black Square, which is a classic example of minimalism.
    And the last photo is taken in an art museum and depicts more examples of minimalistic paintings. The photo itself is not minimalism-like, but the objects in it are considered to be.

    Okay so it's not perspective, but minimalist. Which begs the question:

    what does minimalist hentai look like?! :WOW

    Maybe...

    We try not to do the same themes because there are so many different ideas for photography. Why limit oneself

    PotW 25 Results
    This week's theme was Minimalism.
    Because there were less than three entries this round, all contestants get...

    second place by default.
    If you have any critique, please post it here.
    Congratulations to @Azeruth (Entry 01) and @Nello (Entry 02)​

    I really liked the second entry, the idea and the presentation are pretty fascinating. Great job, Nello!
    ______________

    This week's theme was quite difficult and I know a lot of you guys had many difficulties with submitting anything because of misunderstanding of the theme and its complexity. It was difficult for me to come up with the inspiration myself. And I appreciate the efforts of those who went ahead and did it.
    Let's give us something that will 'shake us up' a little in future and have Freestyle for one of the themes coming up, if everybody is on the same page. Not for PotW 26, of course.

    On that topic, please feel free to photograph whatever u want for potw 26. I just want to encourage people to experiment with angles and distance and stuff because it's fun and I think it makes us better photographers :donk

    For the upcoming contest, can yourself be included in the picture if ya wanted as long as it's at an angle, and your instructing the person to take the picture and the angle yourself you would otherwise take?

    You're supposed to hold the camera yourself (or set up the stand yourself). If you don't we'll add a note saying, "taken by an assistant" and it should be fine.

    Not only have I been planning this photo for quite some time, finding the perfect location took a ton of time. Really looking forward to hearing some feedback once the voting is done.

    Some ideas I guess:

    Masonry/Stonework
    Flowers/Gardens
    Skies/Stars/Moon/Sun/Clouds
    Pathways/Roads

    If anyone else has a suggestion feel free to add it as always. Could also do Freestyle as Nataly suggested earlier.

    I like masonry/stonework.

    I like skies/stars/moon/sun/clouds too. You need a good camera to capture heavenly bodies well, but if anybody has one it would sure be nice :nod
