    Non traditional photographs

    The overwhelming preponderance seems to be threads showing photographs of a traditional (typically representational) nature. How about a thread showing some photographs of a more abstract nature? I will begin with this recent one.

    WOW! That's absolutely gorgeous. I hope your printing technique is up to maintaining the brilliance of the composition. (I'd love to have one, but I'm broke.)

    I know I just used this in a recent thread, but it's a scan I have on hand, and fits here as well.

    Thanks Bill,

    Matt and Michael, both nice images as well. I especially like the metal Matt...reminds me of some of Brett W's images.

    Nice image Donald, but .......

    "Abstract" images are traditional at this point. Abstraction in photography is at least 70 years old as a valid subject matter.
    Representational makes more sense than traditional. When "abstracts" have been a common classification at the local camera club for the last 30 years (as long as I have been volunteering as a judge), they are traditional.
