Abstract-14 is open for entries!

December 1st, 2018
It is my pleasure to host the 14th Abstract challenge.

Here are a few instructions, copied and pasted from previous challenges:

A good article about abstract photography:

Choose a subject and try to see it in abstract form so that the subject is not easily recognisable. There are no restrictions on what to shoot. You might want to try a subject that you know very well or something quite new to you. You could choose a particular angle or close in on a part of it. You will need to consider factors such as what focal length and which exposure parameters would be best to realise your vision…

Please keep these things in mind:

1. As far as possible the actual object is not immediately recognisable.
2. Remember that this is all about seeing abstract before you shoot.
3. To really challenge your eye you might consider SOOC but this is not compulsory.
4. Post-production - edits such as colour saturation, contrast enhancements and black and white conversion are acceptable, but please do not apply any software filters that distort or significantly change the image in order to make it abstract. There are other challenges for that, e.g. ETSOOI.
5. The images should be taken within the time frame of the challenge.
6. You can enter as many images as you like.
7. As with other challenges the person who wins has the honour of hosting the next one.

The images you enter must be taken and uploaded between now and Saturday 22nd December (the deadline is midnight in your time zone).

Soon afterwards I will choose finalists to be voted on. The winner gets the honour of hosting the next challenge!

Please tag your images: abstract-14
To see entries: https://365project.org/tags/Abstract-14

If you can, post your submissions on this thread to keep it visible and encourage more entries!

I look forward to seeing your entries :)

@ksmale I have just figured out why these two entries have not gone to the Tag. Its because I wasn't able to change the tag from my album unless I edited it and I did not do this. Do I have to do this or can you get them across to the Tag folder Abstract-14.?
