This is shoelaces, covered with a colorful napkin, hung up by fishing line, blowing in the breeze (used a fan) on a slow shutter. Lighting is my strobes set on 'modeling lamp' to throw some light on the "dance floor". My goal was it to make it look like a couple dancing a slow and lyrical dance.

Thanks for all the comments and ribbon!

Congratulations on the yellow ribbon (which should have been a bit bluer I think). The phrase 'tripping the light fantastic' comes to mind.

I'm really glad that this shot ribboned. It's a simply outstanding abstract, worthy of hanging, actually. The shot conveys your stated intent perfectly.

Bizarre as it is beautiful.

By far my favorite of the challenge. Of course, it's figurative, yet the way you created it is abstract enough for me. Graphically astounding, a real piece of art. Great work. Looking forward to read your notes, I'm really curious about how you achieved that one!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/02/2011 08:41:34 AM
Instant fav! so charming & interesting & undecipherable
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/02/2011 01:18:08 AM
I'm guessing this is 21.gif gyaban. It is a spectacular failure at being abstract. Lucky for you I love a good failure.

I'm hanging this in my abstract gallery
