Very cool image. Almost reminds me of a mid-century moderne boomerang!

Hi, Clifton,

First of all, welcome to DPChallenge and congratulations on a pretty good finish for a first ever entry at this site. It's quite an achievement here to get a score over 5 on your first entry.

Composition: This is a strong entry for "Abstract". The colours are beautiful, as are the shapes. The straight lines combined with the arched lines make for an interesting picture. On the downside, I think that the dark stripe at the top, the sign towards the top middle-right, and the very small lighter section at the bottom left are a bit distracting. I'm not sure if the picture would be better without them, but they are a distraction.

Technical: I don't see any problems. Focus is good, and DOF doesn't come much into play as this seems to be a picture of a flat object on a plane parallel to your camera. Your post-processing (colour/contrast adjustment) is good.

For DPC: The picture looks small. You are allowed up to 640 px on the longest side (up to 640x640), and 150 KB. You can use any proportions you want. Your longest side is well below 640 px. Smaller pictures usually do not score as well as they could here at DPC, I am not sure why, but that seems to be the way it goes here.

I hope this helps a little bit. Congratulations again for a very good showing on your first entry. Take care,

Good image here. The reflections add to its character.

Great colors. I really like the watery look of the center of the image below the boomerang. My biggest complaint would be the very dark band at the top of the frame. It would be better if it were the same color as the boomerang or eliminated altogether.

Love the colors and the lines and curves. The sign above could have been cloned out so you have just a strip of black. It's quite catching though ... it reminds me of 60s psychedelic pop art. Cool!

This is really nice. Nice sharp image, good deliniation of line, form, and color. Kudos on meeting the challenge so well.

I like the combination of strong straight lines and sweeping arcs.
