This is the CHAT thread.

The ENTRIES thread is here: http://cameracraniums.com/forum/index.php?topic=4557.msg52743;topicseen#new

This week's subject is "negative space".  Negative space is the area which surrounds your main subject and can be used to help define the subject or create a pattern of its own.  The challenge this week is to use it creatively to make an interesting image. 

Some examples are here:

Pretty quiet in here this week.  I hope this is because everyone is busy shooting  :)

If there are any questions or concerns with the theme please let me know!

I had a lot of fun making the space background.

I was going to enter this image of a singing Robin, as he was creating Negative space by warning other Robins that this was his space and not to enter. Thought it might be a bit obtuse for the voters.  ;)

Sorry, my creative juices have dried up completely.

Some setbacks (one expensive one), with the renovation not helping.

Trying to get back into the mood, but struggling.

Hope spring will revive me and my photography.
