Some flowers in my front yard. Had seen this technique employed before, to a much better effect. But still, I kinda like how this turned out.

You got robbed in my opinion. You shouldn't have ended up this low amongst all these mediocre images. Don't understand the abstract voting here at all.

It's too soft. The colors are very lovely, but I can't tell it's a photograph.

Pretty pastel colour combinations...... square foremat excellent for this.

The colors are alright, but there really isn't anything that draws me in here. I will admit that the large version looks better tha the thumbnail. The thumbnail looks like you took a photo of something and really really screwed up the focus. The larger version looks more like an abstract painting or something. Really nice colors. ~Heather~

if you had just a tiny bit more focus (but still soft and OOF) this would be a lot like an impressionist painting, and very pleasing. :)

Very nice, appealing picture. It has an almost magical quality about it and gives one a sense of peace to look at it.

Almost as good as a Monet. (not quite so expensive.) I like the colours merging into each other, and the patches of brightness.

Nice colors, it just doesn't hold my attention at all. There's nothing for the eye to follow.

nice colors, just an out-of-focus shot?

very good, pleasant image with the happy atmosphere of spring, real abstract.

this is just blur, theres nothing to it.

A good abstract. Nice interplay of colors. I would have titled this one "Springtime" because of the green and lavender. Good job.

Nice muted colors and shapes. I have a hard time focusing my attention to any particular part or spot. Not my cup of tea, but fits the challenge well.
