I use the term "abstract" quite loosely, and I don't want to start any definition wars, so if you have something that YOU want to call an "abstract" image, feel free to post it here.

For me, an "abstract" is something that doesn't fit neatly into other categories, like "street," "landscape," or "portrait." It may or may not be a photograph of a recognizable object, but if so, the subject isn't what is important. If it is an interesting pattern, suggests something other than what it is, is evocative of some mood, or whatever, it's OK.

So hear are a few of mine in black and white to start things off.

And here are some in color, too.

If you really want to know, "what is it?" just ask.

Maybe not really a abstract -- but lends itself to be different ....Velvia -- long exposure -- roof top --

Hi Slobodan,

Funny, when I started reading this thread I thought I'd participate with this one, shot on my return from the Photokina:


You just beat me to it with the posting of your version of the concept.

Cheers,
Bart

Hi Bart,

Seems that your flight from Photokina was in first class (i.e., with unlimited servings of alcohol)?  Grin
