Re: Good idea and well abstracted

But one thing keeps me from totally liking this : i feel there is just a bit too much motion (long shutter) blur : this image would have benefited from total sharpness. It would not have hurt its abstraction qualities, while being technically stronger.

Roel, thanks for CC !

You are absolutely right. This was shot 5 years ago with my Casio PS-camera. So the quality of the original photo is not the best and in addition this is very heavily cropped. I tried to sharpen it in LR, but it didn't help a lot. For a whlile I hesitated posting it at all because of the poor IQ, but decided to show it because it is so abstractive looking.

Originally this is a picture of water drops in a window. First time I enlargened the picture I could not realize were the teeth looking pattern is coming from. Afterwards I realized that they must be the white poles in the hand rail of our sauna's veranda that can be seen through the water drops.
