It seems that when you least expect it, you get more 10's.

Greetings from the Critique Club.

Keep in mind, when asking for critiques (the check box when you submit your picture) you should provide comments so the reviewer knows what you were trying to get from your shot.

This shot has great potential...the leading lines of the keys draw the eyes into the picture.

Camera Work & Technique:
FOCUS...You'll hear this a thousand times when there's not something in focus in your image. Keep the viewer interested by having something in focus and using OOF areas to keep their eyes where you want them. Try and prevent highlights from blowing out as well.

Only thing to say here is to get your picture in focus. Abstract challenges are usually won by interesting colors and shapes that don't necessarily make the viewer see a larger picture...just appreciating the image. Good luck. I hope this review has been helpful.

I need for something.... anything to be in focus

Just too much out of focus. It really only needs one little thing to be sharp for the effect you're trying to get. That would disguise what the actual patterns really are but also show people that the OOF was deliberate

Abstract? Not exactly to me - seems more like an out of focus snapshot.

Can't wait for the results, to find out what most of the images are, and how they came about.....

Simply having nothing in focus doesn't make something an abstract IMO. Sorry.
