This shot is of a lava lamp. Took lots of shots, maybe arounf 200 or so to try & get a nice shape that was sharp. Finally decided on this one. Not much too this shot other than cloning out some of the imperfections in thi lava lamp (bright spots etc...), healing brush over the parts that were cloned to blend the colours, crop & resize.

Hi Rooster and * Greetings from the Critique Club *

Yours is a very lovely and intriguing entry indeed. I can see it nicely framed and hanging in the reception area of a high class office.

It's a shame that the rules said that "if you can tell what it is, it's not an abstract." I believe some of the voters deducted points because they thought they knew what it was. In this case, even if you KNOW - it's still an abstract - that's what lava lights do - create abstract shapes!

I usually like to give some ponters on how to make an image better - but I honestly don't know what you could do to improve this image. Everything seems to work very well - as is - including the title.

The dark background, exposure, composition, lighting, and post processing were all done to perfection.

Very nice lighting. Looks like a next-generation ultrasound! Slightly off-center works well.

HA! it's a lava lamp. lol. I stared at this wondering what the heck it was, and then it hit me all at once. duh. Definately abstract with a twist. the color is great, and the lighting is what makes this photo. great abstract. really draws me in to look closer and your focus and clarity are really good as well. very nice. ~Heather~

That blue really pops with the black background. The straight lines add a nice element of interest.

You can tell it is a father because of the beer belly. :) Nice composition and good tones.

This is spooky and definitely abstract. It took me a second to figure out what this is. It looks like trick photography until you realize how simple it actually is.

don't you think a portrait crop would have emphasized the emotion here? looking down and up with love gets lost in the landscape view
