Looking at the photographers comments in the "Abstract B&W II" challenge, 25 out of 38 used this as a subject. Just wondering what this is ;)

(Standard editing, DQ for N/A or something similar as photographers comment)

Iím not sure what youíre referring to here. There were a whole lot of entries that had no comments given?

Yup, 25 out of 38 entries gave no clue about their abstract.

But IMHO an abstract is supposed to be concealing. Enjoyed for what it is. Whatever it is. That's the fun part.

Edit to add:

I don't see anything here that says you must reveal your source

I agree the abstracts should be appreciated regardless of what they are and how they were created, and there is absolutely no requirement for the photographer to share this information. However, when the photographer chooses to provide it, I think reading the "Photographer's comments" (and often marveling at their creativity) can also be part of the fun.

I don't think he meant this thread as a dig on the individuals who didn't put anything in the description... I just think he was making an observation?

I'm fairly confident that he isn't upset that he doesn't know what the images are of but rather curious.
