Hope this doesn't come up against too many dmc problems. I wasn't sure how abstract "abstract food" had to be. This looks like an underwater shot, but isn't. Quite difficult to do, but I love the way it turned out.

---Greetings from the Critique Club!---

First impression - love the color of the mushroom against the dark background and water.

I agree with you that this isn't really an abstract. That doesn't seem to have hurt many of the entries. Still it is an awesome capture. The lighting gives great modeling on the mushroom and glistens off the water nicely. The water framing the subject works really well. The out of focus highlights in the water in the foreground are a little distracting but not much.

The composition is perfect. the eye hits the mushroom and ten follow the water around the image. Well done, as evidenced by the score from the voters.

Congratulations on a job well done!

I hope this was helpful. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

I gave this an 8. Whilst obviously a mushroom, the 'use' of it via this 'scene' (which I realized during voting was likely difficult), created something unusual, which I liked.

Nice picture. I really like the way the color of the food reflects in the water.
