Another interesting abstract that is liked by only a few. My opinion is that the low score does not mean "bad". It means "I-don't-get-it", which is to be expected for this sort of work.

Creative work meeting the challenge at an abstract level, and finally elegant and even moving.

I don't quite understand the image and its meaning

"Huh?" was my first gut response, but what I mean is this image is too abstract for the challenge. All photography is an abstraction at some level but it is the photographic elements that gives the image direction and meaning in the viewers mind. The abstract portions are were the viewer interprets and derives there own meaning from the image. This image is gives me very little to no photographic content to guide my interpretation thus Iím free to interpret it anyway my mind sees fit. It looks to me like a frequency histogram of some data set with the DC response to the left and high frequency response to the right and this seem out side the challenge frame work.

This must represent a pulse. A cool looking abstract that will probably score pretty low, however I like it. The abstract approach says ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/31.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/31.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Lpatrick, though the subject suggests this is also likely to be a ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) .

Raindrops on asphalt? Sand? Beer? Don't know what this is, so I am not sure what the thread connection is...

This doesn't "feel" like photography, and I don't understand the connnection to the theme.

Love this abstract image ... but scoring it not-so-highly because I can't figure out the relationship to the challenge theme.

Well, a very abstract rendition! ;) Not sure that without the title, I'd have a clue in the world what this was about though.
