Something about this I really liked. Somewhat surprised at the final placement. I had this selected as one of my top picks and scored it accordingly.

Too bad you couldn't have incorporated a water drop in it somehow...then you would have made Top 10 for sure! :-P

Wow. Very cool. It has a sort of movement to it. Having the recognizable starfish on the strange background almost seems like a composite with the star pasted on. Arguably this might not be considered abstract but that isn't affecting my vote. To me this would be interesting even without the starfish and it almost seems out of place, but it still works somehow.

The starfish looks like it's running. :-) A nice tonal range to the B/W image. Well done!

I fear people will say this is not abstract enough, I love the tones, and the streaks of grey runnin through the image 7
