After a quick look it appears to me that many entries forgot about the abstract part!

With a score of 3,8 I think I should take a break. It might be a case of dnmc though but still, I need to take a break. See ya

It's ABSTRACT blur, so why did so many photographers feel the need to point out what it is with their title? Irked

It seems like I am going to break my own record of having lowest score ever :)

I get the feeling you have an obsession with this, just a hunch :)

Very happy with my shot, as it shows motion blur and is abstract.

I felt the same way but got a hit that it does not meet challenge though still maintaining my lowest score ever :)

Received a similar hint myself, suggesting my entry was not abstract.

Yup -- at 4.6, two comments saying it's not abstract. I appreciate the comments greatly, because I would have thought it was simply because they didn't like the photo. However, both liked it, they just didn't consider it abstract.

I appreciate this, because my definition of abstract was much more liberal, and I see where they're coming from. And in looking up the definition in a couple of places, the definition seems to fit with their comments.

Abstract, Abstract with motion blur, and blurry photo are 3 different things.

In abstract art, there is no subject to be seen. That makes sense to me in painting. But, with photography, one is taking a photo of something.

But you can make the "something" disappear into an abstract.
