*** Mini Challenge #390 -- 'Abstraction' ***
Jun 20, 2013

Filling in for an absent Mfetz1026

The topic for this week is a tough one… ‘Abstraction’ -- The challenge ends Weds, June 26 at 6:00 pm PDT.
I know you all have some in your collections, you just have to dig a little deeper than you would for that ‘Bird’ shot.

‘Abstract’ is wide open to interpretation and I am not a stickler for rules. “I don’t know exactly what it is, but I know it when I see it”

Good luck, have fun, and please don’t give up!!!!

THE RULES
The host gives you a topic of interest and you get going.

You may enter up to three competition images, but please try to put your entries within a 'single' post.

The host chooses the winner after the challenge closes (usually after one week). The decision of the judge (the host) is final. The judge is not eligible. The winner then chooses the next topic, runs the challenge, judges the winner, and passes on the baton to that person.

If you submit a photo, please check in when the winners are posted. The
first place winner is expected to host the next challenge. If the first place person cannot host, it moves to the 2nd place, etc.

Any picture you've taken is eligible regardless of time taken and brand of camera.
Please reply to the FIRST (ORIGINAL) post if you are submitting an entry and please remember to change the Subject of your post to display your name or picture titles.This way, when someone comments (i.e. replies), it will refer specifically to you. If all entries read "Re: Mini Challenge #389"... it would be very boring to scan the list.

Please give a title to each photo - this makes it easier to differentiate when giving comments.
Feel free to comment on other contestants' images. If you want someone to leave you a piece of constructive criticism, put an asterisk * next to the title of the image.
POSTING GUIDELINES
Please embed your image in the thread. As a show of courtesy, and to save bandwidth, please remove the original post when replying, so you don't bring back any previous photos. List of previous CTF Mini Challenge topics and winners thanks to blademeisterhttp://homepages.peakpeak.com/~blade/minichallenge.htmlHere are a few of mine to get you all started...

GOOD LUCK...

This challenge gives me the opportunity to shoot something new, so I plan to do that. But in the meantime, I reprocessed one that I had taken not too long ago.

I was worried...   but really enjoying the entries so far.  Some very creative 'eyes' on the forum...
Keep them coming!
