    I like the colours ... but the unfocused look doesn't do anything for me personally.

    Hello, Granddad!

    I decided to make some defocused photos rather than photos with bokeh. I think a defocus is better way to achieve an abstract look. Because none of details is dominating, and every detail (people, trees) is equivalent to other. So, that was my goal.

    What exactly do you mean by "defocus"? Are you just taking an out-of-focus picture, or is this an effect done in post?

    I take picture in defocus (prefocus or postfocus) with manual lens. Than I use some postprocessing to make it look more pleasant.

    This photo made with an old Helios 44-2 lens, which I twisted off my dad' camera.

    It's definitely abstract. I'm not an abstract art fan but some people probably think it's the bee's knees.
    Don't let a stolid old fart like me put you off from experimenting and expressing yourself. :D

    That just called out of focus.

    Sorry they don’t look pleasant. The images being out of focus give a unsettling feeling.

    Also I would not call them abstract.

    Hello, Ligth Guru!

    I think that abstract art (or photo) could be in many different forms. Try to google "suprematism", "futurism", "neoplasticism", "rayonism", "orphism", "abstract expressionism", "tachisme", and so on.

    If people can still easily tell what it is I cant consider it abstract.
