There is a trend to get as many details as possible into a photo these days. Some of the buzzwords are 'HDR' and 'Tonal Contrast' that enhance details in shadows parts of motives and add an almost 3D-like effect to the pictures respectively. Nothing is wrong with that. It can look amazingly done right.
However we should not allway work 'inside the box'. So I want to investigate the opposite option: taking away details. This technique is called simplifying. At least that is what I call it.
To add yet another dimension to simpleness for some of the pictures I work from low-resolution material or tight cropped exposures and thus getting close to the actual pixels.
