Negative space put to good use. A very well composed and captured image. I particularly like the colour of the water and the contrasting orange of the anglers top.

Depth...
Conveyed in a very interesting way.
When I joined the site, the first lesson that I learned was to crop ruthlessly.
The second lesson was to allow space.
They can work together.

a lovely capture, John.. yes, negative space has a lot of meaning here..
and what Moira says.. Depth.. perspectives.. alternative perspectives.. ultimately it all relates to one's own experiences and the way one knows what is missing in him and what can fill that gap..
so carry on, cowboy! keep fishing.. and love the life and enjoy it when it really gets tough like I do..

Just what IS negative space ? I have never heard it satisfactorily explained.............Regards Martin

Oh that's tasty, John.

The conversion's obvious, and not an improvement... I simply couldn't resist it.

Negative space?

I'd say it's using an essentially blank area as an active part of the composition, so that the overall effect is spoilt if you remove or reduce it.

Any expansions or refinements, anyone?

Sounds good to me. Also... the space around the subject which is used to focus attention on that subject. Depending on how it's used, it can even become the subject....

THIS could be another example.

Many thanks for the welcome explanations, guys and gals......but does negative not become positive space when used in this way ? ie, does it not have a positive contribution to the overall scene ? just a thought....... Regards Martin

Only in a manner of speaking, in the sense that it becomes the subject.

P.S. Never been called a "gal" before. Maybe I should shave less often.

yes, a repeat of the same lesson : Crop close .... but then, ah, negative space !!

this is a perfect example of negative space !
