Maybe that's chromatic abberation or something ... I actually adjusted this very little.

I like that toast! Hey, maybe I could have called this "Underdone Toast"

Thanks for your comments!

Hi Paul and *Greetings from the Critique Club *

As a pretty new member to DPC and the Critique Club - let me thank you for the work you do on the SC. I can tell by the recent activity, it's not an easy task.

Your image is an enjoyable one - a nice abstract tapestry that is made a bit mysterious by the title. Unfortunately, I would call it a "Howard Cossell" image - people will either LOVE it or HATE it because they are looking for something it doesn't have.

Since it's an abstract - all the "rules" are pretty much null and void - but I hope you played around with color enhancement. I really like the areas where a subtle blue tint sneaks through.

May your worst shot in the future be better than your best shot of the past. (A toast, slightly modified.)

To me this isn't abstract, just boring. Looks like a scaly pattern of rust with no focal point.

Love it....can see them moving. Nice to see a non-shiny photo. Trying to interpret the anisotropy but haven't come up with anything yet!

Just a thought! Very good. (Is it Brownian Motion)? or something much more commonplace. Anyway, it is unidentifiable, so that make it 'abstract' for me.

Like the pun for your title. Einstein would like this one despite the fact his explanation for brownian motion marked the begining of Quantum theory that he personally could never accept.

It looks like a thousand piles of ant shit. Just so happens I like ant shit. C+

Very Jackson Pollock-y. Was this a rust outtake?
