Abstract Circles

So I knew what abstract was, but wanted to read on it some more to get a different idea than what I had. I went to digital-photography-school.com and searched abstract. I found a pretty cool article with tons of pointers. I'll have to look it up again if any of you might want it.
This is what I came up with, Abstract Circles


Taken in shutter priority mode with a shutter speed of 1/2.5, iso:200, F36. This shot is also SOOTC. Can any of you guess what this picture is of?

I don't even know where to start guessing! But I love the light and the colors but most of all I love the feeling I get when I look at this photo. It's a work of art. Good job!

This definitely looks abstract. My initial guess is that it looks like bubbles, but with really weird lighting. But then, as I look at it a little more, I think it could be sparklers, like on 4th of July. I don't think that's it either, though. I'm stumped. I really like the photo, though. :)

This is the article I found that helped me take this photo. http://digital-photography-school.com/adding-randomness-to-your-photos
This picture is of jelly beans. Can you believe it???(if you look closely you can see them)
I took it with a long shutter speed while moving my camera in circles. I also tried side to side and up and down. I even tried taking one with a flashlight spotlighting the jelly beans. They turned out pretty cool too, but just didn't have the composition I wanted. This just has light from my flash and from the ceiling fan.

I was about to say red balloons but wow jelly beans! Fantastic!

Candace said...
