    Hi All, Lets see if ya think this passes as an abstract, ingredients all here?



    Photo #1 ( Small) shows the following

    Ok this is a large Wine glass 1/2 filled with water, sitting on red poster board..the wine glass is also green in cast, ( not pure green).. The lighting is Window, and Flash used to freeze some motion..

    [​IMG]

    Photo #2 ( small ) shows better detail of shape of Glass, which allows it to play on background color/ and water highlights the green, with window light, and flash... it also shows water being poured , as timer is running... red eye reduction also used since clear water/ glass/ and flash.. maybe it helped.. ( hoped?)

    [​IMG]

    Photo #3 Finished Product...

    ISO 50 / APT,, 3.6 / Focal Length 100 mm / Speed 125 / Flash yes..

    So does this work for a Abstract, comments . .. critique.. or just how do ya feel about it??
    Lets hear it folks...bigger the better on a wall/ or put it in a photo album and forget it..

    I think it works. A bit Christmas-ish but deffinately abstract. If I didn't know I could think it is a gel with air bubbles in it, running water, water being stirred, or boiling water.

    i didnt think id ever say this, but i think theres too much detail in the photo..... dont like the angle either nor do i like the lighting it seems to simple and not creative
