Somehow your image reminds me of the boiling insides of a violent thunderstorm. I love your abstraction.

Wonderful, and a really lovely pastel.....
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I love those lines! This picture is absolutely electric. 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/29/2006 09:29:28 PM
One of my top three picks -
the subtle colors are a delight to the eye, and the carefully controlled narrow DOF creates an ethereal mood complemented by the dynamism of the fibers. Dance of the fairies, indeed - this could be a photograph from a ballerina's dream.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/29/2006 02:38:24 PM
Very cool and surreal looking. Amazing job on the technicals, as well as the creativity.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/28/2006 03:45:18 PM
Nice abstract - looks like neurons - maybe a little more contrast to add depth, but you probably tried that and liked this better.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/28/2006 01:21:02 PM
Back to comment. Very cool shot. The title fits it well as this picture invokes a fantasy type feeling. A cool and funky capture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/28/2006 10:19:33 AM
It looks more like a painting then a photo...I like it though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/28/2006 06:35:24 AM
this is superb...what a delicate image...great for the challenge
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/27/2006 01:54:19 PM
after voting on a few images, I have the feeling that the word abstract is indeed abstract - in my mind it goes like this: if you can see what it is, it is not abstract - your image is wonderful, abstract :), well composed, has got stunning texture ... I really hope it does well
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/26/2006 09:40:41 AM
Love it.
