Abstract




Nikon D80, 120 mm, 100 ISO, F/5.6, 1/50 shutter

Ok, seriously, I had NO IDEA what abstract meant...I actually had to google the word and look at your previous submissions to see what you did...so, this is my take on it. Still not sure it is what "abstract" means, but this is the trunk of one of our Queen Palm trees in our yard. I thought it was kind of cool.

PLEASE CC, I really struggled with this one!

If you're interested, here are the other shots I didn't choose.

I think that's awesome that you chose a word that was a true challenge for you, and something you LEARNED from! I like ALL of your pictures you took... but I think you chose the best for abstract. Nice! :)

I think it's great, really! I can't think of any CC. Love the colors and texture!

Way to stretch yourself. This is really a cool shot- though all of the others were so amazing too, I don't know how you were able to decide. I loved them all!

Melanie, I looked at your blog and i'm just floored, ALL of your pics are soooo awesome (I smiled HUGELY at your ducks shot, how cool) this picture is perfect, I love the angle and the details- you're a pro!

This is a really neat abstract picture, it is hard to see what it is so I am glad you explained it to us and that is what makes it a good abstract picture! Your other pictures are way cool too.

Its a great angle of the trunk, and I like the way the the fron fibers wrap around it.
