    I spelled the title backwards for a reason.......
    These are by far my favorite types of shots. They do not come too often. By far the most preferred method of photography and it is what I will continue to aspire to improve on. The rest is just to keep myself busy. I have been working on these for a long time now, and still have only a few of them. Since I only appreciate the best of them, I hold myself to a higher standard and rarely like anything I take and end up just deleting them. Ill continue to post a few here, kind of like the deer images. Please critique these harshly. Some of them I know are pretty good. Others, well... I have my opinions but I want to hear yours. In the meantime I just want to show them to you. Maybe I can influence some of you. Have not really seen too many abstracts on here. Unfortunately I have already posted a few others on here so there will be a few less.

    Photography is more than just taking a picture and freezing the action, or leaving the shutter open. It is more than orchestrating the image with the stroke of a brush. Its the realization and explanation that reality is an isolated experience in which only a specific individual can comprehend during any given time period. - Your Truly!

    Yeah, I like this kind of thing too. This image feels a little soft to me - or is that a web resizing thing?

    It's the show forum - but you did ask...
    I like this image a lot. It looks soft but that may just be the filesize. I may have added an inch or 2 at the bottom, but aside from that, well done!

    Thanks again guys. After this is printed out, this shot is a lot of fun to look at. It is really sharp and the textures you just want to touch everything. Anyways, stick around and there will be a few more up relatively soon!

    Here we are again. I love the colors, textures, and lines in this one. The plug is especially interesting in the full version.

    Here is another image I enjoy looking at. Nice and simple. Not a particularly attention grabbing image, but still interesting.
