Very tight result, congradulations to everyone who participated, this was quite an experience and a fun crowd.

I am very happy to pass the next Challenge to:

Hans ... His picture scored 36 points and won the challenge

nfoto was a close second with 34 points

Pbendheim was third with 28 points

DaoDang was fourth with 25 points



This was the challenge with the most participants so far and with the most voters as well.

I am sure Hans will pick up something to keep this trend going.

If you need any help Hans, just PM me ...

Congratulations to Hans and the other winners. This was indeed a fine group of images and the voting was difficult because of it. Also, wanted to again thank Yves for conducting his second competition - WELL DONE MY FRIEND

Ditto to Gordon's comments!

Also, I have a question, to Yves and the community at large: what is an abstract? :?:

I feel I may have totally missed the mark with my entry, but that's alright. I can learn... can't I? ;-) To me abstract meant either a portion of a physical subject that is not directly recognizable from its detail (hans' fence for example), or something that conveys an idea, more than the representation of a physical subject.

Please, enlighten me!

Congratulations Hans and to all participants :!: Thanks Yves for this challenge. It was very fun and I think the long period of submission is a good thing to be repeated. I'm looking forward for Hans contest.

This was was my first participation and I appreciated the high level of quality in the submissions and comments. Congrats to the pick of the crop, and to the the sower, Yves.
Can only look foward for the next theme.

As for Philippe's question, well, I'm not a theorician in photography, simply an addicted amateur, but his asking allows me to share my own view. My definition would be closer to his first proposition to which I would add that an abstract will emphasize the graphical aspect of a subject (lines, patterns, rythm) to the point of masking it's documentary content. As for Philippe's second proposition, I would be tempted to stamp it more as symbolism. JMHO, and passing the frizbee around...

I think you pretty much nailed it with the first assesment ...

Congratulations to ALL !.

Suggestion,
In the next Contests, can we repost first 3 winners with their pictures ? For those who didn't follow the submission thread, one has to go and look through all pictures to find a winner.

Just an idea :)

Thanks Yves. Here is a list of definitions for the word abstract, from Dictionary.com:

1. Considered apart from concrete existence: an abstract concept.
2. Not applied or practical; theoretical. See Synonyms at theoretical.
3. Difficult to understand; abstruse: abstract philosophical problems.
4. Thought of or stated without reference to a specific instance: abstract words like truth and justice.
5. Impersonal, as in attitude or views.
6. Having an intellectual and affective artistic content that depends solely on intrinsic form rather than on narrative content or pictorial representation: abstract painting and sculpture.

From that, it looks like the challenge theme was referring to #6, and I took it to mean #1 (unless it was #3! :lol:).

At any rate, it was a great experience: thanks for choosing this theme and congrats again to Hans, Bjorn and Peter... and everyone else! 8)

Congrats folks, well done!

I second that, Jay. I think that a repost with the three winners, and their names is a terrific idea - saves searching back to remind oneself of the pics. Cheers, S
