I have been playing with slower shutter speeds and my horses (motion blur) lately but hesitate to post them because I dont think a lot of people will "get" them. I liked this shot but also thought it was more a reflection than What. It would look great framed on a wall, nice abstract. It just didnt have that Wow factor that I look for when voting on this particular challenge but it is great in its own right! A series of these in this style would be great as a collection.

Edit to add, I have just looked at your portfolio and have to agree I saw more there that I love and make this one look a bit sterile in comparison, still like it though LOL. Great shots!

I love most all of your abstracts. This is not one of them - I gave you a 5. For me, your abstracts are about motion. This one doesn't have a sense of movement about it. I think it is due to the blue at the bottom. It kind of stops the flow. The colors here don't stand out, they just lay there. So many others you have created just jump off the page at me but this one didn't do it. Sorry!

I LOVE THIS! Great sense of motion, and I like how you chose to shoot this in the reflection and not at the tree itself! A new found favorite!

has an oil painting feel to it.

Very cool concept. I like the flow of this and how the tree trunk acts as a leading line to draw the eye into the abrstact. Being an abstract, I think you could have saturated the colours more to give the abstract more vibrancy and maybe, as a result, a reason to linger even longer on this good abstract. Overall, well done.
