This picture is a stunning example of minimalism photography.

Of course, it is balanced and well-arranged, but other than that the author makes a great use of contrast and geometry. Black rounded lines form a beautiful rhythmic flow. The sky and the roof are nearly of the same tone, so you can't tell when the sky ends and the roof begins - which is a bit surreal.

And the birds? Did you notice their black carved silhouettes look in the same direction?

Amazing! This is a really beautiful work that stands out from the crowd of other black and white shots. It is impressive and not easy to forget.

Great job, *herrblod!
