The countdown for The Workshop in Berlin has started.

Each day participants will be given a small task and are asked to relate a recently shot photo to one or more gestalt factors that innately are forming our perception of visual messages. Like photography, like street photography.

Even if you are not attending The Workshop this time, you are welcome to take a say in these brief exercises. Please write your suggestions in the comment box to this post. The question is: Which is the most obvious gestalt factor that this image relates to?

The gestalt factors we deal with are: proximity, similarly, common fate, direction, good curve, closure and habit. You will find information about all on Street Photographer’s Toolbox. This very site.

Answers can not be wrong or right, but some answers obviously will be more to the point than others. Try your luck.

Welcome to The Countdown.
