how beautiful is the grain here Katastrofo, and the light.
some fantastic photos here, I specially like Mo's and Henry's

I just realized that I must have experimented more with abstracts before I got into manual lenses,
these were taken in a hospital ( in Japan ) with ( digital bridge ) Konica-Minolta A2

Nope. It's looking upstream through the exhaust port in a Yamaha XS650 cylinder head after I spent quite a bit of time polishing it.

thank you Mo.

@Michael .....A little ETish... Laughing

Kuuan another pearl...I assume they are metal balustrades although they look glass like in your photo?I think they are perfectly abstract in their appearance. Very Happy
