Lens-artist’s Photo Challenge # 74: Abstract

This week, we are being challenged to show Abstract. So Ihave delved into my archives, and without further ado….here I deliberately chose to use a wide aperture and focus on a point of light to throw everything into abstract:

Here, I have used Intentional Camera Movement (ICM) to create a couple of abstract images:

Tulip Abstract 1

Here, I’ve focussed on a reflection on Regent’s Canal to provide another form of abstract:

And here is an abstract created some years ago, from some rust and scratched paint on an old car:

Abstract – layers of years

Hope you enjoyed my different approaches to abstract! Oh

    Beautiful, creative abstract images. I love the Tulip Abstract, and the water reflections are beautifully captured. ICM is well done! Thank you for sharing, Susan!

  2. Great abstracts Sue 😀

  3. Those first three are superb!

  4. Some very cool shots. I like the 2nd one and the last one.

  5. delightful and colorful

  6. A nice varied selection. Did you have fun browsing through your archives? It can bring back such memories…

  7. Ana

    Love your colorful abstraction!

  8. Fabulous abstracts 🙂

  9. Very nice and inspiring! Thank you Sue!

  10. More excellent choices for the theme. The car shot is so unusual. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  11. Absolutely wonderful collection, Sue! I can see that you’re a natural when it comes to thinking/shooting in abstract. I’m still working on it!

  12. Oooh – these are gorgeous. The colors are so rich, and there’s a sense of movement and flow in each of them. Lovely.

  13. These are terrific Sue. Loved the lights and your sweeping colors especially but they all struck a chord with me

  14. wonderful. Can’t wait to try this.

  15. Oh these are beautiful! I especially like the top three! 🙂

  16. All lovely but the tulip shot in the middle is my favorite. There is a sense of a flower without actually seeing one.

  17. Oh, wonderful, Sue! I hoped you would use some of your excellent ICM images! The second one is a gem.

  18. Excellent. Very innovative.
