Sorry to read about the disqualification. Keep up the good work!

I kept the white streak as an anchor in the madness. This is actually river flowing madly over rapids here in Colorado with a simple rotation.

Congrats on your 5th, Beau, works very well; what is it, gerber petals?

I love this, the colours and flow are gorgeous. Congrats on top 5.

Great job, congrats on 5th! I love the flow and color of this. I think it might have been even stronger if you avoided the brighter area being vertical and near horz center.

I am hoping something like this ribbons. It has such a beautiful flow of color. The patterns are intriguing.

A lovely abstract. Good job!

Beautiful tones and light.

very nice,great colours

The best parts of this image are the large sweeping forms, gentle ribbons of light and color. These curves of light gently draw me into the photo and fill me with peaceful thoughts and feelings. Very nicely done.

Nicely done abstract. Like the colors and lines. The white line at the top middle is a tad distracting, but its still a 9 from me.
03/15/2008 08:53:04 PM
this looks more like bokeh than blur.
03/15/2008 07:37:32 PM
no idea what this was so guess you passed ..... love the colors and blurr
03/15/2008 06:55:32 PM
Very artistic. I like the excellent warm brown tones here.
03/15/2008 09:37:18 AM

very interesting rich colors/textures
03/13/2008 09:08:42 PM
this is gorgeous

These commom abstracts are fine to behold, for sure, but I was looking for more creative usage of the Blurry Mess license. Not that this isn't fun to look at, nor that it doesn't contain elements of the challenge stipulations -it's just that this could have easily been in some other abstract challenge.

I'm looking for more unconventional, even literal use of the theme to seperate the wheat from the chaff in this challenge - and that's what makes this challenge so inherently difficult, and difficult to score.

Overall a beautiful abstract, that would have gotten high points elsewhere, but only slightly above average for this particular challenge.

I like this picture on 2 levels: the forms and curves altough in nature very dynamic. combined with the warm brown color and the brighter area in the top middle creates a point to rest and explore along the curves
03/13/2008 12:18:05 PM
wonderful colors and a very nice macro. this focus works very well. Like the title, too
03/13/2008 10:15:16 AM
I don't know why, but I love it. No idea what it is, the form intrigues me though. Good job.
03/12/2008 10:39:25 PM
Perhaps a bit dark
03/12/2008 09:55:55 PM
Nice abstract, love the rich color, I look forward to discovering what it is!
03/12/2008 09:19:09 PM
Very luminous, almost liquid looking... nice work.
03/12/2008 08:37:17 PM
Fantastic subject. Whatever it is.
03/12/2008 03:12:24 PM
A nice study in form as your title implies. The light on the backside of the petal is a nice contrast to the coppery tones.
