Challenge: Art of 2011 (Advanced Editing VII*)
Collection: challenges 2012
Camera: Canon EOS-7D
Lens: Sigma 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 DC OS for Canon
Location: Gauteng, South Africa
Date: Jan 16, 2011
Aperture: F6.3
ISO: 3200
Shutter: 1/125 sec
Date Uploaded: Mar 14, 2012

The same light as my "Best of 2011" entry. Photo taken one hour later.

I hope the similarity between the two shots doesn't hurt me. If I had known this challenge was coming I would have saved the other photo and used something else for "Best of 2011".

I don't know what this is, but I love the boldness of the orange sphere in the darker, less defined background. A very nice geometric abstract. In my top 10.

Very interesting. I like your title... making the viewer stop and think.

Voted earlier coming back to comment now.

An interesting composition of shapes and color to convey a mood or feeling. Love the bright and bold orange ball; it DOES make me think of the sun. It just pops off the black backdrop. The slice of freeform that contains green can make one think about nature and trees, but because the main shape invokes imagery of the sky I see the green ripples as an aurora borealis. One small critique - I think the large border takes a little away from the appeal of the image. The orange thin line calls attention away from your main subject - I feel that orange ball should shine alone in the composition.

I see this large, bordered or framed just like this, hanging in a modern office. This is ART, high level. Should score well.

such a different and unique shot. love the abstract feel to it. the only thing that I don't like is the line that goes through the bottom of the picture.

I really like the composition, but I'm not crazy about the internal red border -- it's distracting.
