This is an abstract image - not a picture of a knife and cabbage ...

It is, quite literally, "a picture of a knife and cabbage." And it's an interesting one at that...

...I roughly counted 12 eyes that did not see, visually, "a picture of a knife and cabbage." It is literally, yes, because someone mentioned what it was, otherwise, so many eyes are wrong?

Pardon, but we are pushing the issue here.

It's not a matter of "right or wrong," it's art. How boring would photography (or any other medium of art) be if we so restricted creativity. Frankly, one of the joys of looking through challenge photos is finding all the creative ways that people can find to represent the challenge.

The rule was "show us your kitchen knife and the product it cuts." That's precisely what the OP did -- his photograph fits the rule perfectly

Yes I agree, as I posted earlier, but I didn't know it was cabbage until the op stated it was.

Maybe the host wanted the product to be clear as to what it was without having it to be explained in a title or description.

If that is the case it should have been explained in the rules.

. The rule does not prohibit close shots of the knife, or require all of the knife and the ingredient to be pictured. That rule is being imposed only in this discussion.

By the way, the original picture appears to still be in the challenge, so perhaps it's a moot point...
