Challenge for Pictures in a Series: Motif or Concept Towards ZEN

How about your ZEN Feelings?

Say, do you suppose it would be worthwhile to start a post about simplified Zen-ish photographs? Members could post sample images to illustrate approaches to minimize distracting elements.

Just a thought...

I cannot match Maggie’s leaf, but that perfect shot gave me an idea:

Wolfgang,

Like a private temple offering!

When did you do this, it already has 5 visits by folk!

The red and black ace it!

Would it also work blurred?

Unrequited by Maggie Terlecki
In this image, I'm trying to show an emotion that artists, poets, musicians have written about and expressed throughout all time: Loving someone that does not love you in return, or may not know even that you are there.
What's going on with the shadows in this is very important to the title. I think it may work in this thread.

Maggie,

Yours works! I feel it. But the title IS required here to guide us with a tap on the shoulder pointing our gaze in the right direction.

The aphorism, that, “A picture should speak for itself!”,( like most of them), is false! Titles can set the mind to accept the implausible. Sometimes we need that.
