The image must have first been created in a camera. It is okay to use (or not use) digital effects in software.
Think in terms of the 'essence' of a thing or place, without a lot of conflicting colors or lines. Please know what Minimalism is before uploading any works to this group! You can refer to our first group for examples: Minimalism in Photography at this link: http://fineartamerica.com/groups/minimalism-in-photography.html?tab=overview.
You may also refer to this group for examples of excellent minimalism:

Not all images will be accepted into the group. The administrator is the only 'jury' member making the decision to accept or reject an image. If a work is deemed to not fit the 'minimalism' concept, it will not be included. This group is for the Best of Minimalism in Photography, so it may be an example of minimalism, but unless the administrator considers it to be among the best as both photograph and minimalism, it will not be included. This is a subjective issue, admittedly, but we have to have some limits.
You may only upload two images per day to the group. The idea will be to draw people to your artwork site, not to hold thousands of images in the group, most of which will not be seen if they are too far back in the pack. Therefore, the administrator will, at least once a year, thin the images from the group.
If you have any questions, please feel free to write to me.
