This is one of my agave images, taken with a macro lens, up very close, to capture the curved leaves of the plant.
I love its abstract qualities, which are much stronger and more dramatic in black and white.

' This is s combination of four of the above single image called "Three" and photomerged into this abstract pattern, which looks like a flower.

A wonderful series. The Tryptich comes to mind and these 3 shots on white look very elegant. All have excellent play on the interaction between shadows and lines. Couldn't see a better way to present them than in b/w.

I love good abstracts and this is a VERY good abstract, which would not look out of place in any exhibition.

Having said that I have to say that personally I think that symmetry is an even more striking image

Two magnificent shots!

Terrific capture. The wonderful soft lines and curves really lend itself well to this minimalist style. Nice tonal range and wonderful composition.

I think you hit it right. Black and white definitely brought out the abstract in this beauty. Good job!!

Wow, I love the textures and lines in this close-up photo of the Agave leaves! Love the tones. Beautiful textural lines and I like how the two leaves come together to show off those lovely curves within this square composition. I noticed that the portion of leaf that curves toward us in the foreground is a little soft compared to the sharpness of detail in the leaves throughout most of the rest of the image. This happens with macros especially if you use a lower F-stop. Hmmm, you shot this at a 3.5-5.6 aperture - you might want to try a higher F-stop like an 8 or more with a slower shutter speed (you will need to have a tripod for this) to get a richly sharp details on both the forefront & background.

Yayyyyy. A Sherpet Agave! Nicely done Shez. It looks good from this close, in-your-face angle.

Very well composed to an abstract image. Great use of B&W tones.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Wonderful shapes and nice capture of texture. I think because the shapes in the frame are large, the softer focus works very well with it - conveys "gist" rather than precision.

Very beautiful, almost looks sexy :) I like all the greys, and the subtle striping.

Great abstract, B&W works well because it lets us focus on the lines and curves.

Excellent composition. I love the balance of light and dark, and the way you equalized the reveal in the upper part of the composition. Like the border addition, too.
