I used acryl paint on a sheet of glass for this one.
This challenge has proved a "real" challenge for me ;-) and I really hope I've nailed the "without subject" part of it.
After looking at it loads of times (understatement of the year;-) my eyes are still darting all over the picture which is supposed to be a sure sign that there is no obvious subject. Just hope the voters think so too.

Hello from the Critique Club:

I think the comments you received during the challenge sum up the strong points about your entry pretty well. The colors are well saturated and the pattern is very dramatic looking. Having 20/20 hindsight commenting after the challenge, your image could just as easily have been in the top ten as any of the others. When I compare your image to the one that placed 8th, I see nothing in your image indicating yours should be scored lower. I have a feeling that you are the victim of the random order the voters receive the images to vote on, as some people that love abstracts may not have gotten to your image during voting. You have a very creative entry here that anyone at DPC would be proud to have in their portfolio.

Hi Kelly, I've sent you a pm.

You may have scored better, I think, using closer to a 150kb size, as that would probably have helped the black areas to look smoother.

edit: Ah, so the brownish black was intentional, sorry! I think that unfortunately it looks like compression artifacts might look. But either way, when I came across this image during voting, my attention was drawn immediately to the liquidyblue beautifulness. I only noticed the background after a second look... so maybe I am completely wrong about how you might have scored better, hehe! Thanks for the PM - is always nice knowing what the photographer intended with an image.

I'm surprised as well that it is not on the front page. This was my top pic of the challenge. Well done and beautiful.

This is so cool, Irene, it meets the challenge so well and is just so unusual and well done. It really surprises me it didn't end up in the top 10. I like it a lot!

I think that covers the challenge! It's got great colors and crispness to it. And I don't think it's really a subject is it? It's an abstract. How much more non-subject can you get? :)
