Exploring the southern New England coastal region in search of that special image that just seems to capture the mood of the moment. I came upon this almost too perfect seascape that just screamed for me to photograph it. This minimalistic Fine Art print captures the stark beauty of an abandoned pier along the shore of Long Island sound. A long timed exposure smooths out the ripples of the incoming tide creating an ethereal, ghostly effect. The fine details of the derelict pier structure are amazingly sharp, a large print will surely demand attention.
Minimalism in photographic art is best defined by the proper use of negative space within the print. Strong leading lines, contrast and a dynamic subject are powerful factors that literally invite the viewer into the scene to explore.
