|Greetings from the Critique Club!
This is a nice shot for the Abstract challenge. You have framed your subject well, and this is a nice crop. I like the splash of red, as well.
If there is a reason why this did not do better than it did, I suppose it is that most of the things I like about it are things that the painter of the image did. Yes, you chose what elements to include and where to place them in the frame, so it is a nice photo. But, it seems that rather than being an abstract photo, it is more of a photo of an abstract thing.
Have a nice day!
