Summary – At the heart of the definition of an abstract is usually – No Recognizable Subject. But – if that were all of it, just a random jumble of colors and forms would qualify. Here’s a “random jumble” gallery – but not a gallery of good abstract images IMO. (Part of an ongoing experiment.)
Strictly Speaking – an Abstract
FWIW, all images made in camera (extreme macros)
As seen through the viewfinder
These images fail to satisfy (not well anyway)
The most important one of the “4-C’s” when it comes to abstracts
They fail when it comes to Composition (visual design)
Don’t know the other 3 “C’s”? Look at the blog’s masthead.

Composition is difficult when faced with
Seemingly random juxtapositions of forms & colors
If I were a painter I’d have control
Here, I have to work with the hand dealt – more or less
Are we having fun yet? 😉
