When I first looked for photos with negative spaces in them the only ones I noticed were all silhouettes. This is my second attempt, this time with non-silhouettes.
Big negative space.
Two people, a dog and a channel marker for scale out on Spanish Banks during an extremely low tide. Here I got rid of all the boats (annoying distracting white dots) and was thinking of getting rid of the clouds and mountains too – I did it too for the long horizontal crop I needed for my theme’s ‘Feature’ image.Four men play a game of boules in Aarhus, Denmark. Standing on a wharf in the water.
Weathered lifebuoy on the door of a boathouse in the harbour of Porthgain in Wales.I like the way this boat cuts into the water at an angle. Not sure why I like this one….Feeding a fat seal at Fisherman’s Wharf in Victoria, Canada.Positive shapes cut into a blurred or nondescript background.

Excellent examples. Well done. I like the net casting in particular.
These are all good examples of negative space. My favourite is the photograph of the four men playing boules, which I have now learned is similar to bocce.
A very beautiful and special series for this theme. pturI’m in awe with the net capture. The angle, composition, and light… are perfect.
All are perfect choices, Elizabatz!
Well done Elizabeth, thanks for the second post! Laughed at the little duck 😀and loved the boule players.
Right now I can’t go out as there is a ton of smoke in the air from the wildfires to the south of us so I am stuck inside going through photos and exploring negative spaces. Ducks always make me smile – there is something about the little creatures.
Stay indoors as much as you can – it’s so sad and frightening!
Enjoyed your flow here and The one you said “for some reason” you liked – well
Me too- the green value – the shapes and the duality on the photo
Liked Weathered lifebuoy
So nice to explore negative space
Love that fisherman throwing the net into the sea.
