Dedicated to Vincent! This is a beautiful blue sky and a gorgeous fall tree where I've spun the camera while shooting. PS was only used to reduce, and to clean up one small dark spot in the center.

Hadn't seen this one before Neil. Really nice. Totally inviting, the image just really draws you into it. Not only nice colors and motion, but neat how the shift from blues into the oranges make for a nice vertical split of the shot too. Composed great, the photo grabs your attention, then the eyes follow the split and the colors towards the top left, then the motion brings you back around to start over again. Great abstract!

This should have scored much higher. Beautiful colors and composition. This was not an easy photo to create, I am sure of it.

I admire this shot as being one of the most original in the Challenge. I'm amazed it scored this low!!

I really didn't give this a chance in my first pass. The colors are gorgeous. Great abstract. Bumping way up.

This may be voted down as too abstract, but I really like it. The colors and movement speak to my chaotic side ;) 8.

Awesome. Best sunset (assuming that is what it is) I've seen for ages. I wannna know how you got the camera to spin so cleanly so I can have a go myself. Until then I'm just gonna stare at this : )

Very inovative. I like the effect but I don't think it would do as well without the title

What an interesting way to shoot a fire. I'm not sure I like it but then again I've been looking at it for about 5 min. now and can't quite graps it. Nice motion blurr and excellent colors and despite there being nothing or very little to look at I am drawn to the photo. Well done and keep up the good work in 2005. <7>

Good abstract. Looks like you moved in a semi circle with the shutter open.

Nice work and what really makes this picture is the beautiful combination of orange and blue.

Wonderful use of photography to create abstract art. I really can see Van Gogh's influence in this; the colours, strokes and curves all support that. 8

This does look like Van Gogh...cool
Composition is great on this.

Beautiful colours - very abstract. Look forward to seeing how you did it!

The border is distracting - I think because of the white part (I tend to dislike borders, but black only might work for this shot), but it's a neat shot.

Fantastic!

So cool. I love this. It's abstract and the orange and blue compliment each other. Would love to know what this was.

As if I just have been in the rollercoaster with three triple loopings for half an hour after drinking a bottle of Vodka. :)
I like the effect. Great colors, especially how the blues go over into the oranges. The top looks like its on fire. Nice work. 8

Brave entry! Nice abstract. There is enough here with the curve and colors to keep my occupied, so I'd say it was a great success! 9
