Note: My title was suggested by the musician. Quite appropriate, I think.
I had originally been attempting this for the "1 second exposure" challenge, but the chrome guitar was reflecting way too much light for a second long exposure, even at my lowest ISO and narrowest aperture. The blown highlights seem to work for this theme better, adding abstractness to the image.
Not expecting much from this. A low 5 if it does well, but a 4 would not surprise me either. Hard to really tell with this sort of image.
Post challenge notes:
Did about as anticipated and hoped, placing mid-pack and on the positive side of a 5. It is not pure abstract, as it is identifiable, but It does have a strong abstract component and past challenges have shown me that there tend to be many semi-abstract entries like this.
Not sure what the black spots were caused by. Maybe long expsoure in strong light was the culprit. Wasn't sure I could clone those out under basic rules.
Here are some shots of this musician that I am far more pleased with, though they are not abstract at all.
