    Good idea, I think, but it's too difficult to tell just what the subject is (what parts are shown) to make it really work for me. Too 'real' to be abstract, too 'abstract' to be a regular photo... Does that make sense??

    This photo is again about 10k in size. And lots of artifacting in the shadows again.

    The positioning will already ensure that it's abstract...the DOF...almost puts it out of reach from a recognition standpoint and is distracting...I'd either dramtically reduced, oblique lighting and a tighter shot, i.e. much less of the body and take it completely out of context, or stop down the lens a bit.

    Just my opinion FWIW

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos OK to edit
    I can tell it is a body bent at the waist leaning forward towards the camera. That aside, I think your instincts are good but it's not quite there as a picture for me.

    Actually, she's sitting on a chair covered with fabric & leaning on the chair back. I'm standing directly over her shooting down..
