Get pushed challenge - abstract

So, I had to look up what abstract meant and according to dictionary.com:

abstract [5] fine art [e]....of or pertaining to the formal aspect of art, emphasizing lines, colours, generalised or geometrical forms etc, especially with reference to their relationship to one another."

I guess this fits the description as there is a mix of lines, colour and shapes.

This was a challenging push which was totally out of my usual 'photography' zone. I found it very odd to be looking for and photographing something for lines and shape and not have the picture 'be' of anything but lines, shape, colour... I admit I have turned this picture 3 times to try and make it 'look' like something.. lol, :D - now I think it looks a little bit like an owl with 2 dark eyes and wings at the sides!

Editing info:
In photoshop, I went to gradient map and selected the colour choice above. I duplicated the image and flipped one, added mezzotint [coarse dots] to both images, blended together and adjusted the levels.

Thanks for this push @zosimasy this is something I would never have considered doing myself.

@zosimasy hope this is ok.

HI Tari @sitiodown thanks....this picture started out as a picture of the top of two back gates that were next to each other but had strips of wood separating them and strips of wood above them. The darker colour was the wood on one of the gates, the other door was light coloured so it's effect cannot be seen.
