Actually, it's a closeup of an Ikea wall lamp. Shot with my flash on, slightly in the dark, the metal reflected to give this copper colour.

Slats of copper maybe, no idea what it is part of. Nice abstract, almost looks like a man's tie.

beautiful photo here. IMO, the frame is a litle thick.

A stumper, so meets the challenge. Very nice abstract.

I'll guess some kind of inlayed wood like on a guitar maybe?

Nice picture. I like the lighting and composition
I'm trying to work out what it is...
I would say car grill... but there aren't enough flies on it.

Striking image. No idea what it is though.

You got me on this one! No Idea. I'm liking the simplicity of this one, so it gets a good score from me

Window blinds perhaps? Very nice colours although I find the border a bit overpowering.
