I have seen this White Arrow a lot of times before at the same place. But I chose to click this today because of the man sitting crossed legged on the stairs complimented the White Arrow. 

The White Arrow is my main subject here and the Man compliments it. As an add-on are the stairs on the left and to the right. 

One can category this Minimalist Photograph under Minimalism as Less Elements and under theme "Minimalism and People"

I shot this on the Canon EOS 6D Mark II with the 100mm Prime Macro Lens.

I was about 50 meters away from the subject and I was shooting from the side angle in the portrait mode.

To assist myself to get the lines correct, I composed this in the Live View shooting mode, instead of using the View Finder. 

I did the mistake of earlier leaving the image too gray and with less contrast about 3 times. 

Finally, I decided this edited version is OK

EXIF Settings:

Aperture - F/5.6

Shutter Speed: 1/200 sec

ISO speed: 400

Your thoughts on the Image?

More shots using the White Arrow:

1) Cutting the Arrow

2) Blue Chair Versus White Arrow
