    Thank you again BE, you're too kind.
    JTL- again that is one complex photo... if you let your eyes relax a bit it turns into something like an optical illusion... at first glance my eyes did not focus on buildings...and when they did it was an interesting effect. I still can't quite figure this out... I want to say its a reflection, because that was my first impression, however, with enough study it almost looks as if you are above the city there...which now I believe to be accurate. pretty cool.

    JTL is making us think a lot in this thread!

    You are having some fun on the thread - great shots folks.

    Here is a "cheap" shot of the underwing of a moth. Canon A80, exp 1/160, f4.9, exposure compensation -2/3.

    Wombat - (can we call you Taz for short? )...ain't nature amazing when you get up close? It's cool to pull things out of context and give the viewer a visual treat. Very cool image...

    Andrew...thanks for the compliments! You are correct! This is the second abstact that I posted that started out as an aerial shot of Manhattan. The original came out blurry (wrong ISO setting!) but with a little help in PSP, it suddenly became a "keeper". About half of what I shoot is source material for "photo paintings", so it was a nice surprise to get one that was unplanned...the inspiration actually came becuase of this thread!

    I think I like the second one best, aparmley, very nice colors.

    I just clued in that I have an abstract too, my "Amazonian Rain Forest with Lakes":
