Agonizing about whether or not to enter this image, which is a total experiment. Trickery, illusion, deception. No way to tell how it will be received.

I am SO loving the comments. A "floating shell", paint on a wall, everything that implies the imagination is engaged. Abstract images make me feel alive!!

This photo is in part of my favorites already and revisiting it I realized that it's a perfect Morandi, without his bottles.

Very interesting... a cookie sheet, huh? Wow.

I gave it a 6. It said 'horizon' to me. :)

You are awesome. I still can't even see it as a cookie sheet. There's no chocolate chip cookies so I just can't visualize it :) Congrats on submitting such a clever shot :D

I love everything about this but especially the little bits in front. Congratulations on the posthumous award.

It is the foreground debris that authenticates this mirage.

My kind of line. Cuts right through those sickly pastel colors. Ugly yet pleasing. Nine.

Looks like a wall with a strip of paint missing. I love the texture and the 3D feel on the bottom contrasting the 2D feel above. Beautiful photo.

Smooth pastel simplicity. The photo has far more depth than first perceived. Very interesting image. Nice.

I was hoping to find a few shots here and there where "horizon" was an implication - this is an excellent example of that!

The colors are incredible. Almost pastel.
