    Interesting effects Ken.  I like the tinfoil.  I have no idea if this is abstract as it is not something I have ever studied but like you I will have a crack at it sooner or later and hope I hit the mark.  In my case, if it does it will be by sheer luck rather than design 😉

    Winter

     

    (As usual, it looks rather better large on black background, here)

     Fujifilm X100
    23mm
    1/80s
    f/2
    ISO 3200
    Available light

    (Whether this is strictly abstract is a moot point,  though I claim some justification from the fact that a number of Picasso’s abstract collages contain recognisable, concrete elements while the overall image remains abstract in character. However, I’m open to challenge, and happy to withdraw it if there’s strong feeling against its inclusion here.)

    Ken >>> I suspect that the Pencils image would probably not be classified as abstract by an art historian, as it comprises an arrangement of concrete objects in an entirely figurative image, in contrast with an image like Picasso’s ‘Studio With Plaster Head’, which is not a figurative representation of a real studio – even though it contains recognisable concrete elements – but an abstract evocation of the essence of his studio…

    I GOOGLED  “Abstract Photography”  and one creator has 70 abstract images to view. There explanation I liked  was –  When someone  said ” I like it- But what is it”  thats abstract  and I thought a good summary. One of the images was exactly similar to an old pdi of mine–close up of inside a flowering iris.   Now whats this one????

    Indeed, Ken, those last two look abstract to me!

    This works better as an abstract rather than the other posting you entered. I would echo Ians sentiments, but this is more in line with abstract.

    Now you’ve got it Ken! Excellent! I think I need to twiddle and tweak a bit like you. Thanks for the inspiration.

    The first image is a bit over saturated for me. I prefer the black and white version.
