This image was taken in a formal garden. Abstract??? I entered this photo in a competition in the Abstract category. Whether it is or not will be determined by the judges. The contest is a yearly event sponsored by PBS - Wisconsin Garden and Landscape Expo. There were five categories: Macro, Landscape, Phone/Tablet, Plants & Flowers and Abstract. I entered all five categories as a way to occupy some Covid time.

Hi Phyllis: YES, we are all getting tired of this COVID plague that is sweeping our Great Country and the world. Not certain if this is a true abstract or not, it will depend entirely on the judging panel on how they see it. Nice presentation of the leaf with soft lighting and uniform sharpness. From a pure composition standpoint am glad you avoided having the main stem emerging from the exact corner or the frame.   Posted: 01/11/2021 18:52:53

Hi Phyllis,
The natural lines and colors in the leaf draw my eyes in and keeps my interest in the image. Your lighting and perspective help accent the texture of the leaf. Overall I think this is a winner.   Posted: 01/12/2021 08:53:33

Not sure it would be classified as an abstract but it is a very good subject with good composition, sharpness, and color contrast.   Posted: 01/18/2021 13:15:19

Thank you all for your positive comments. The people at the Wisconsin Garden and Landscape Expo considered it an abstract and they will include it with two of my other submissions in their online photographic exhibit. The judges scoring will be available as of February 22nd at Virtual Garden & Landscape Expo .   Posted: 01/18/2021 14:12:51
