Thanks for the GREAT score and helpful comments.
I started off with a completely different idea than the image I (finally) entered. It unfortunately, because itís a nice image of a flower, didnít work because it just wasnít abstract enough even though I really tried to convince myself that it was ;-) See below:

Then I remembered the plant thingy in a glass vase that my bossí wife gave me last Christmas and which had these blades of grass sticking out of it.
The kitchen ended up looking as if a bomb had hit it, earth and other parts of the plant all over the floor and my photographic working surface, which was a piece of glass balanced on four plastic beakers to save my back from breaking through bending down too much. I was in the sweaty, swearing phase by that time because Iíd already spent about an hour and a half on the other idea.
Did about 50 shots of the grass blades and decided to call it a day because none of the images were turning out the way Iíd hoped. Saw that I only had another 2 shots on the card, so I took these 2 as well and checked the lot on my computer.
Well, the second last image was the best of the bunch. Typical! Was I ever pleased that I filled up that card ;-))

THANKS for the ribbon. So delighted!!

Congrats, my friend!
I'm so glad you've ribboned!

(But, I have to mumble that it's not one of my favorites of yours... I only gave it a 7. SORRY!

But... I'm not an abstract kinda girl...)

Congrats on the ribbon, Irene. This one and the blue ribbon were my two 10s in this challenge. The abstract forms are perfectly composed and the light and colour are exquisite.

This one really said abstract to me the most. The lines leading in and out of the frame are outstanding. Congrats!

I'm guessing this is not a found image. All the same, it's got quite the interesting comp. The lighting is nice, as it mimics the blades, but not exactly.

Stunningly simple. I especially like the sharp focused green against the black, and the soft green bokeh behind.
