Ah, the famous dancing (free) dry cleaner bag! Nicely done!

The colours here strike me and the diagonal line adds some drama, however the image as a whole does not work for me. Maybe without the plastic bag... Just a thought. 6

This image reminds me of a scene in "American Beauty" where the neighbor kid films a plastic bag. Anywho, it looks good but a bit over sharpened (the bag). Maybe because it is moving, hard to tell. Extra points for originality! 7

i kinda like this shot, but I don't think it fits the challenge very well. The colours and concept and composition are very neat, however. I wish the green was in better focus, or a little less of the shot to justify the OFF/blur.

Nice concept, however I would have liked it more if the sky had no clouds and if the green wall was in focus.

If it is recognizable as an object - it is not an abstract

So, do you like American Beauty? I'm not sure if this is abstract in terms of the challenge description (though i don't necessarily agree with the recognisable part of it) but it's certainly quite arty. I do very much like the bold colours evident here, the green of the wall is wonderfully contrasting with the sky, and the bags lettering matches the green wall rather well. Your choice of location is terrific. I'm not a big fan of borders (i ignore them largely when voting) but why you didn't select to use a dark green is unclear. Your focus on the bag is very good. Technically i think it is very good, and you evidentally considered and thought about the shot (the only thing missing is the tinkly and deep music). 8.

Interesting, but I'd lose the border.

How dare you try and represent an abstract concept? :)
Nice strong diagonal and contrasting color ... good luck!

I can tell what that is.
