Summary – Using nothing more than aperture (DOF control), focus, and polarization can result in major changes to a captured image. These settings are always important; more so when using extreme macro to create abstracts.
This is image #1 below
#2 is #1 after changing reflection glare (circular polarizer)
#3 is #1 after changing aperture from wide open to f/16
#4 is #3 after changing glare (as in from 1 to 2)
Nothing was changed outside of the camera
Changes affected only how the light entering the camera was handled

Increased DOF (#3 & #4) is detrimental to the result
In a similar fashion
Changing the focal point yields a different image
When working with extreme macros
Keep your camera settings in mind
Each different combination yields a different image
I recently proposed hosting an abstract photography exhibit
