Fine Art: Ambiguous Subjects Challenge finished on Thursday, 15 May 2014 Lets see your beautiful art images where the subject is pretty much indeterminable. Let the viewer be only concerned with the image itself and not what it represents. One definition of Fine Art is "art for art's sake". This series is targetted at attracting images that are beautiful not so much because of the subject, but the image itself. The technology behind the image might have little bearing on the result. So whether you are using a pin-hole camera or the latest manufacturers flagship - its all equal here! We are looking for beautiful compositions and plays of light and shapes.
