    No PhotoShop in my pictures, Ken – I make photographs with a camera and the digital equivalent of the basic stuff we did in the darkroom in the days of film; I don’t create ‘images‘ at the computer with graphics software. “Split grading plus dodge and burn”, me! ūüėČ

    Admirable Ian. Lot to learn from that. Its my opinion also that correct settings in the camera are paramount reducing the need for adjustment afterwards.

    Ken, I think your creation lives up to it’s title, total abstract! It an intriguing photo, if it is a photo. I struggle to work out the scale on all of Ian’s pictures, or is that the idea? The strategically placed¬† red spot is truly dominate as a red circle must be the post powerful visual object. Is the red spot to strong? What do other members think?

    I like the mood of the second image with it’s cool muted colours and texture. I think I would have like to have seen a bit more of the purple at the top left. The last shot as more depth than the others. I like the neutal background with it’s gentle vignetting. I just wonder if it needs something else to add a bit more interest. I think you could use it in a ‘what is it competition’!

    How clever Ken.  I would never have thought of that. Love the intensity of the colours. Great to see the original.  As I said I am struggling this month.

    I assume Ians last one is knife handles.  Amazing how different ordinary objects look in close up.  I do agree that the red spot in Ians first seems a little too intense. I would like it to have a little more definition in it or at least its edge. Love the pottery glaze close up.  I assume that is what it is.

    Dee / Pete >>> thanks for suggestions re ‘Red Spot’;¬† have another look – you’ll see I’ve altered it a bit as you indicated.

    Dee >>> Lovely glass abstract.  I particularly like the rich blue-blacks.

    Well done D for your entry, its good to see what people see and take on the abstract theme. Must do some more myself this month.

    I’ve read somewhere that curves are always more interesting than straight lines and I think this is evident in Miss D’s colourful image. I like the rich contrasting colours and the reversed S composition.
