Rachel, I had a feeling this one was yours. I have to admit I am your sole 9 during voting. To tell you the truth I don't know why I didn't give it a ten...

It's such a cool shot. I love the dark playing against the light and the inflated glove is kind of creepy, in a cool way. I love it!

for me, this doesn't fade into abstraction. It never stops being an inflated surgical glove.

An accomplished lesson of isolation - disassociation/reassociation of form - perfect method. An evocative title. a favorite.

This is not an abstract IMO. It is a wide shot.

Definition 1= Art that departs significantly from natural appearances. Forms are modified or changed to varying degrees in order to emphasize certain qualities or content. Recognizable references to original appearances may be slight. The term is also used to describe art that is nonrepresentational.

Definition 2=Not realistic, though the intention is often based on an actual subject, place, or feeling. Pure abstracion can be interpreted as any art in which the depiction of real objects has been entirely discarded and whose aesthetic content is expressed in a formal pattern or structure of shapes, lines and colors. When the representation of real objects is completely absent, such art may be called non-objective.

Great comp, great light, interesting angle, great lines, good texture, nice idea, b&w ok, nice flow, overall a great pix but not for this challenge
