Congrats on the win, only ribbon winner in this challenge that I felt really met the challenge head on although I wouldn´t have voted the other two down for it, for me abstract means "not recognizable right away" and the other two it´s obviously a mushroom and a kiwi but here I don´t have a clue what I am looking at.

Even though I loved all of the top five images in this challenge, I do believe that yours is the "ONLY" true abstract, and also the best "true" abstract in this challenge. I feel sad for the image that was DQ's, as it is a brilliant photo, but very happy for you, to win the "BLUE" ribbon.....Once again "C O N G R A T U L A T I O N S"

beautiful tones and colors. Compositionally strong and remaniscent of abstract painting. I don't get the title and it might have been more aptly titled 'gelatin' and left to the imagination - but anyway: a rare 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/23/2006 10:21:16 PM
Great colors and very interesting. 9 from me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/23/2006 09:12:30 PM
This is certainly abstract and a very creative take on this challenge. The bright colors in this shot look great!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/23/2006 06:07:27 PM

neat shot of rainbow jello! the colors are wonderful
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/21/2006 10:59:00 AM
This is a superb abstract. I just love the whole feel of it and the colours. Can't really tell that it is food at all. Please let us know how you created this after voting is over.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/21/2006 10:02:55 AM
Excellent work fitting in perfectly with said challenge. Interesting colors and textures promote an overall pleasing abstract. Well done indeed! A top contender.

Creative and fun!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/19/2006 08:12:27 PM
I love this image and at first passing I am giving it a 7. I do hope for your sake that the voters will remember that the Challenge called for an Abstract... because, so far it would seem that a lot of photographers haven't.

Best of luck to you.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/19/2006 01:36:42 PM
I wish I would've thought of this. I love the rainbow of colors and texture. Almost looks like stained glass!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/18/2006 09:09:02 PM
Very cool jello macro, best one of the challenge ;P The color and light are very interesting. Nicely done!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/18/2006 10:04:56 AM
good job--one of the few that has some interest, the shot is well executed, and it is truly abstracted.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/18/2006 03:43:44 AM
Well balanced in colour and composition. The photographer has matched the challenge of abstract food and taken the theme to produce a very well contructed and powerful image. First Prize.

a winner for sure!
