Not sure if these are 'abstract' enough, but...

I like 1645-46-48QN, though I think it needs a catchier title.

Thin ice on the flowing waters of the Roasco Creek, as seen from the small bridge near the Casera, West Grosina Valley. (I fear it's even less catchy to english speaking people than the alphanumeric one)

... but in the zygote there are some signs of Kandinsky :o

I'll throw this one in under the sensu lato definition of abstract.

That is definitely in the top ten so far, IMHO.

Lots of good stuff. I used to poo poo "abstracts." But I finally learned that no matter what we shoot or paint or draw or sculpt, if people can relate to it and you like it, it is worth the look and effort. Here's a few from a series after a snow storm. I could not resist the red amid the snow:

These two are as real as it gets, yet I hope qualify at least as semi-abstracts. From the Lake Superior:

They're fine. Sometimes reality is abstract.

Another (the last) icy "abstract", some years ago: my favorite (loved) pool at the end of September. You can see reflected the sky and the  "Visega" (Festuca scabriculmis, yellow, by that time). West Grosina Valley, near the Rusgiai...

That's OK Michael, makes a beautiful abstract.

Thank you. The unexpected play of the light made photographing these seemingly mundane soap bubbles quite the experience

Some great work here!  Peter's 'wooden web' reminded me of this one, from a few years ago.  Sort of an electrician's nightmare:

Hey Mike, really like your abstracts. I lean more to the subtle ones, like your zygotes. I think Freeman Patterson called a lot of these, non-representational imagery rather than "abstract." Of course many are abstract. It doesn't matter, if done well, I still like them.

Here are three which I did using in-camera motion techniques.

WOW !
This thread is exploding within no time - seems it was overdue.
And there's some stunning work in it !

Time to contribute:
Though I am not exactly sure which of these qualify as abstracts I posted them.
At least , I believe, they have some sort of abstraction of something in them.

Cheers
Chris

Haven't posted in a while, so what the hey. Of all the shots I took at The Wave a few years back (most of them forgettable), this one stood out for me.

It was shot as you first climb up into the main wave segment.
