That's very nice - but why "abstract?" Your long exposure has sort of "cancelled out" the water, leaving the massive cliffs just floating there in their hugeness. It's a very creative way to show the cliffs, I think, but hardly abstract.

Peter, thanks a lot for your comment. I appreciate it. I called it abstract because if you have seen any of my other long exposure work I hardly convert my images into black and white and process them this heavily. I am glad you like this photo because I do too.  Smiley

Well put.

To put it another way, the beautiful geometry of the composition takes center stage from the objects actually pictured. Not abstract, but something beyond a simple representation -- art.

Aloha,

That is very nice. You could call it a monkey; but it would not be a monkey.

The method of reaching the viewer in an abstract is completely different than figurative or representational work.

Strong layers and textures in the rock cliffs, nicely done.

I like the photo a lot, it seems "strong" to me (whatever that means, but that's my response).  When I showed it to my wife she mentioned that she thought the water looks like an extension of the fog in the distance.

cheers,
Michael

I love it but I would replace abstract by mysterious. For me, the long exposure transforms water into fog and I can imagine a deep chasm…
