Hey Keith: the abstract is often right before our very eyes yet it takes a special talent to present it so. Congratulations on your RED!

Congrats on the red Keith . This church is obviously beautiful inside out, I have only seen it from the outside.

Great texture and pattern, and I like the subdued colors. Good luck.

Aesthetics is not, I thought, what it used to be, once, among the splendours of the old rule. Apparently it is not without effect on a contemporary sensibility. Thus the abstraction is suberbly purposeful here.

Who was it who said "Beauty is aptness to purpose"?

I like the feel of this image. perhaps running this image through neatimage would have improved it, but good work.

This textures are great in this dark tone abstract image.....

Well, "If it is recognizable as an object - it is not an abstract." It looks like a staircase, but I'm hoping it isn't. I love the colors, textures, and shape. An 8 for now, but I won't be happy if it is a staircase.
