Well, you certainly have seemed to provoked a lot of comments with this image. I am going to have to read this thread several times just to take in all the thoughts in the replies. If nothing else, you have engaged many people in conversation and seemed to have people thinking about the concept of abstract in general and abstract photography in specfic. Way to go. Now as to the image. I like the flowing forms and lines and I am fond of high contrast images. It may be a tiny bit too high contrast, if I can explain this rightly. The image seems to want to flow smoothly and sleekly, almost subtlely. But the extreme contrast seems to clash somewhat with the flow. Almost a little jarring. Not that that is all bad. I would really like to examine a large print of this to see if my impression is correct. I would also like to see a few more examples of your work of this type to get a feel for it. Very nice.
