Note the ghostly image of a woman's upper body repeated in the vertical strap. Woooooo.

Wow - there really does seem to be a woman's image in the strap. Trick of the light? Creepy. I like the warmth here. Though I'd have liked it better without creepy hidden woman. I'm alone in the dark at my computer. I'm going to turn some lights on now.

This would be interesting if there were a subject, or if it were just a wee bit more artistic. Right now it's just blinds..although at the time you took this it would've been PRIME for having a model in. With the blinds partially closed with so much sun seeping through - it makes light material [like a dress] GLOW..it's really stunning.

I am amazed at how appealing this photo is! I never would have thought of photographing blinds! Much less that they could look so good. But, that's why I joined DP -- to learn from more creative thinkers like you. Good luck!

I wonder if this would be better if it were even more unbalanced. Pincushion distortion visible at the top. Sure is backlit!

I really like the simplicity of this and the subtle colors. If it were not sharp focus it wouldn't work but since it is it works just great. Excellent abstract and good choice for this challenge.

The little pull strings look like boxers gloves to me. This is interesting.

Caught the light well, just a little bland for my taste.
