I like the shadow, it adds depth to the image.

I like the image but is it abstract...........I'm not so sure. I was taught that abstract art does not depict a person, place or thing in the natural world.


Don't even begin to think I'm criticizing your images.
Just a natural curiosity.

Yes.

Thank you. I'm going to agree with you. :-)

For me it is an almost.... love the shot but the shadow, for me, makes it less abstract; more obvious. Great shot though.

I was little unsure about it too. When I had processed it the shadow kind of startled me, TBH. :-) Thanks for taking the time. .

Thanks for another view. I decided that I could live with it. ;-)a

Thanks for the vote! Well that was one of the reasons I asked yes or no. But my feeling is it's probably obscure enough. Graphic enough anyway. YMMV. And an abstract photo HAS to be of a thing in the "natural world." Just HAS to. Right? :-D

Thanks, everyone, for taking the time to look and comment. I appreciate it very much.

This.
I love the image, it is great. However it is too obvious what it is and therefore doesn't work for me as an abstract image.

From an artistic standpoint, I don't really think it's up to anyone but the creator what it is or isn't. The beauty is that everyone interprets every image differently.

With that being said, it gets a 'pass' from me. Get rid of the 'glow,' and I like it even more. :)

Great shot! How did you do that? I hope it's not top secret :)

Thanks. Yes, top secret! No, just kidding. The setup is a black acrylic tile placed on a table with a black background. The glass sphere is 80 mm or so in diameter. And the lights are an LED light strip I purchased from Amazon. After it's all set up, turn off the lights, open the shutter, wave the light strip behind the table, then close the shutter (Bulb mode). And that's all there is to it. I'm still experimenting and will post a few others soon.
