kyricom: A lot of (nice) entries seem to be ignoring the "you might expect to have something in it" part. ( 5 years and 1862 days ago )
jbillitteri: I think all the landscape scenes are off theme. If we weren't there to see, they would still be as they are, they are full in their just being. ( 5 years and 1860 days ago )
lvstealth: agree. yes, they are not empty of anything that is normally there. ( 5 years and 1859 days ago )
jawshoewhah: Yeah I would have to agree as well. Unless it was an image of an open field that had freshly been harvested, how would it convey emptiness? ( 5 years and 1859 days ago )
jawshoewhah: This is something that many entries have a misconception on. The absence of people is not the definition of empty. ( 5 years and 1859 days ago )
lvstealth: Jawshoewhah, you really defined it well, something that you EXPECT to find something in/on and it is not there. most of the scenery shots i see just what i expect to see, no matter the vastness nor the beauty, it is not empty of what is expected (even though the author might know that things were there, it is whether we expect to see it there). i think some are trying to show a feeling of emptiness rather than empty things or places in a literal sense. ( 5 years and 1859 days ago )
sayam: everyone feel loneliness in his mind and longlyness is also emptyness ( 5 years and 1858 days ago )
