    I tried to give this more of an abstract feel with a minimalist composition. What do you think of the shot and is it abstract enough for use in an "abstract" contest?

    I think it would work just fine as an abstract entry. I like the desaturation and off-center comp. :)

    I like the shot; nice contrast... but if I were to enter it I would rotate the image 90 degrees CCW to landscape style.
    That would get people guessing. It would also strenghten the composition in my opinion.
    :D

    JeLeAk - I did brighten the background some, but I didn't PS it out. It was a white wall in my apartment. I did crop it to get rid of the shadow from the flash. Thanks :)

    I rotated counter-clockwise but that's cool too. :D

    Loooove it rotated!

    I mean, the upright one is great too - but I can tell that it's water. Rotated I have no idea! Isn't it cool how the brain works like that!?!

    Thanks everyone :)
    I submitted the horizontal one to the contest, and we shall see how it fares.
    The contest is OneWordPhoto's month long contest in case anyone is interested :)
