    Hi Nestor - I understand what you're saying, but my own definition of "abstract" differs somewhat from yours (unless it's a translation error on my part from what you've written).

    I agree with your definition that "abstract" is de facto not "representative". However, patterns and lines have been used by abstract expressionists for some time. In fact my own entry in this challenge - a macro shot detail of my Movado watch - was inspired by Hilma Af Klint Svanen's "Abstract Circles", a very famous abstract piece (and one of the earliest):

    There are patterns (circular) and lines through them, but it is universally considered an abstract work. So when I was viewing the photos on offer here, that was not a consideration for me.


    For myself, I thought some of the entries did not perhaps meet the criterion of "abstract" because they were clearly identifiable objects, sometimes a section, sometimes a close-up, but identifiable nonetheless. As such, to my understanding they fell into the definition of "representative" art, not "abstract".

    But again, I certainly understand the point you are making.

    Its my belief abstract in photography has a wider meaning than in other art forms, mainly because of the wider subject options you have.

    Nevertheless, I would like to comment a point (forgive me if it is a problem with my translation). With "Abstract" I understand a graphic art that does not portray realistic images.

    From the rules

    Any photo will be accepted for the challenge. Edited or straight out of the camera, it does not matter. You are left with complete freedom to do whatever genre of photography you wish to do, and your own interpretation of the challenge subject.


    Discussion of the topic is good. I also think the idea here is to have participation and not get into fighting over whether a particular entry meets the subject. To be clear I do not think your comments are in any way wrong or anything other than discussion.
