    If you hate people that over post process cuz that's what you're about to see.

    The first two shots aren't too overly done, but after that look out :)

    In the last three I was shooting for an abstract feel, was it successful? Do you hate them? I can take your harshest criticism's...BRING IT ON :)

    hah, i think i've created a misunderstanding...i dont hate all digital manipulation, really. this stuff you've done is actually pretty cool. i just dont like it when someone just goes into photoshop and applies one filter or two and does something that is crazy that anyone could do, and isnt creative at all. or something that couldnt be done in a darkroom.

    I did open it! For I am not too afraid of digital post processing. Sometimes it is just fun. It's play - for me it is, I should add.
    And I very much like what you did to the dandelion. This image of the dandelion reminds me of photos ... ah, the technical term was up here a while ago, but I don't remember, grrr! ... where you put the object directly on the photo paper, light it, and the develop the paper, what is it again?

    Great shots.
    Although I don't think they're really abstract in my books (but abstract is so subjective). I can still tell what they are. especially the second last one.
    The dandelion pic looks like an x-ray sort of! very cool. First two pics are very nice too. Great tones.

    A photogram or rayograph I think it's called.

    Thanks for all the comments everyone :)

    LaFoto-glad you asked it b/c I knew that it looked like whatever it was called that you in the darkroom but for the life of me couldn't remember the term either, so thanks for clearing that up Meysha :)

    As for abstract it is hard to define which is why I think this next contest should be quite interesting. See I've always been told that abstract is simplified realism, you can still tell what it is, but it lacks detail and recognition. Yet others define abstract as more Nonobjective which is what I have been taught is when you can tell what the object or art is at all...more of a design.

    Again thanks for all the comments. I always enjoy experimenting and hearing your thoughts :)
