I think NatGeo has gone to your head. No way this would interest them.
Well played sir.
I am curious, what makes this an "Abstractscape", as opposed to a landscape photo?
I like this
Someone has brushed something under the carpet!!! :shock:
Did you find out what it was?
This little hill must have called out to you "Take my photo, take my photo"! Well done.
HA! After my 15 seconds of glory, I'm back shooting what I like the most. (Chances of being touched by NatGeo's wand a second time: 0.000000001%.)
I don't have a straight answer for you. This is of course a landscape, but since the scene has been reduced to some basic lines, curves and shapes, it's really become an abstract landscape. A landscape is about the beauty of the view, while here the idea is to take your eye for a ride --there's nothing beautiful about this scene
Someone made a similar comment on my Flickr, and I have to agree: a carpet is what this looks like
It absolutely did! My friend was at the wheel and I had to ask him to stop because I was hearing the hill's whispers in my ear. Until he set up his tripod I don't think he thought the view was interesting at all, but then he took a sweet photo. Thanks, Corinna!
...and thanks everybody for your comments!
