    I think many people use "abstract" to mean "non-figurative/non-literal." Basically, it's not a photograph of a recognizable subject, it's just a painting of light and color. You really need to have a strong sense of composition to make it work.

    If you are fortunate enough to belong to a club that is a Northern Virginia Alliance of Camera Clubs member, you may wish to know of an upcoming Abstract Competition. For more information, go to: www.nvacc.org I don't know what abstract is yet, but I'm looking forward to entering this juried (read tough!) competition! Geezer

    So your advertising a money making photography course in your sig yet you don't know what abstract photography is?... yea right.

    Here is an idea... why not join a forum with more hits than any other, make a generic subject which everyone will want to add thier 2cents worth, and use your sig to attract traffic to your money making site..... oh wait.
