    Here is the second project for Bitter's gang - focusing on abstracts. The idea is to create an abstract composition with lines being the focus. The other objective is to try to find our subjects in our surroundings.

    Please let me know what you think, where it is right, and where I can improve.

    Thanks

    I really like #2! thats a sweet lampshade.

    There seems to be some grain in the blacks but thats not your fault, but It can be taken care of in post.

    Here is my attempt in post (hope you dont mind)

    I played with colors in lightroom and reduced noise.

    You can buy it here.... IKEA

    I knew I had seen that before.


    #1 looks like expanded metal grate over something printed, like another photo or drawing.

    #1 Looks like you took the picture through the top of a patio type table sitting on a deck.
    I really like # 2. I actually like the colored one better.

    Your lighting has produced hot spots on the metal mesh in shot #1.

    The first one conveys depth and it's interesting. I don't like the 'mesh' layer underneath the main subject... it's giving a strange upsetting texture to the background. Keep in mind, abstract isn't really my thing.

    I like the strong contrast of #2...the lines and light are pleasing. It's a bit empty and could perhaps use another... something, perhaps on the left side to provide some balance. I dunno.
