A true abstract image, then. I think that the colors, lines and shapes come out just perfect here. The only thing I note is that the colors are more vibrant to the right. I am not sure if the image will be better if that is changed, though.

Mike, excellent abstract image! Great lines, patterns, and color. No idea what the subject was which is what makes this an awesome abstract. The color on the right is stronger than the left so I would try to balance that out. The same with the dark shadows in the center vs the left.

This is a very effective abstract Mike. It gives me soft and smooth feelings associated with the stalks, and the sharp edges of the leaves make me shudder at the same time! So, very effective. The colour and tonal changes across the image work really well for me and unlike Alfredo I think those variations are what give it real impact. Cheers
