Any thoughts on possibly adding this as a forum topic ?

Or where would these type shots go best?

Very happy day. ... Larry

Larry, I would post them in a Picture I Took (with a Nikon) or Other Camera Systems (non-Nikon Camera). Depending on the abstraction, Architecture (when shot with a Nikon).

It has been discussed before but there doesn't seem to be a need for an abstract forum. It can certainly be revisited, but it seems that other forums fulfill that need.

I've often wondered about this too. I have an abstract area on my website (http://www.pixels4u.co.uk/abstract), but wonder whether it is best suited to the "master your vision" forum. I may be off track, but is this as an example what could be thought of as abstract. It's photography after all

An Abstract Forum would be a welome addition! I do no know how one figures that other forums fulfill that need - becasue it sure does appear as such to me.

I really like abstract photography, and I'm sure I'd be a regular visitor (and occasional contributor) to such a forum. And Larry, I always enjoy your photos when you post them. Your abstracts are one thing that makes the non-Nikon cameras forum a fun place to visit!

Thanks for the comments, keep chiming in, as I said before, we can revisit an Abstract Forum.

I would welcome such a forum, visit it daily, and contribute to it. I make many Photoshopped images that I keep on my hard drive for my own enjoyment. I think it is an evolving new art form that happens to use a camera for part of the process.

There are many 'images of beautiful objects' but few 'beautiful images of objects'.

Really needs its own forum to avoid blowing away the sensibilities of those who judge beauty by "accurate" color and "perfect" exposure.

I enjoy the abstract when a certain image catches my interest. There are those, many perhaps, who feel that treatment of an image in this way is heresy. One could say infrared photography is abstract! The fact remains it is a photograph and another form of representation. I'm not saying it's something I do every day, but I'm sure it would create an interest. Perhaps it could be part of the post manipulation forums in post processing.

Just a thought.

Wow - thanks all for the interest/comments.

Maybe I'm different than most .... but I re-visit my better photos of all my photography - almost constantly...

for me to 'create' something new(or art) out of past shots ... is VERY rewarding.

...Abstract/Elements of design/Art form
even /Creative/wild...
In this forum ; if it comes to be ; "(Let's see what we can do.!)".

Special thanks to Randy.
When anyone really enjoys/appreciates my photography ;it's a plus.
My photography is not intended to 'corrupt' all 'normal' types of photography... ;
"No,rather to add,or find,uncover,create...'GOLD'. "

50% of my photography is 'messed with' - to put it nicely.
But, honestly...
I absolutely love some of the results. And feel,"Wow - this would have gone 'unseen','uncreated' ".

Part of art is photography;all different types.

And a "Very happy day to all". Larry

Added a shot ; this shot is creative X creative ...angle - shot in a car bumper,and VERY creative in photo-finish/PP.Fits 'art' too - though it's of corse loosely art.
Nikon D5000.

I like to keep this thread as a discussion about whether or not we need an Abstract forum. Let's keep images posted in their respective forums for now.

Thanks!

OK.

Would Abstract include artcy,elements of design,weird and manipulated?

(I think it would)

I really think having an (Abstact) would be a plus...
for me -
I have 9 digital cameras + one I may win ;which only 3 are Nikon;

so for me,I would get to use Nikon (Abstact)only with those 3.

I know it's not for everyone ... think of it as going to a local art display...
we certinly don't like ALL of it,but - with each his own taste ; we kinda like one here or there.

I thank you (Nikonian - all involved) in considering this new forum(think of the potential/possabilities) of such a forum.

Not for everyone - but (for me) wow-to re-create.

Very happy day to all.
I do tend to go off on a 'tangent of pictures'-seems my inteligence is 60% visual.

My vote is in ... and good luck!!!

Maybe fans of abstracts should start a thread in the "A Picture I Took" forum to contribute and discuss abstract photos. Then, based on the level of participation in that thread, the Nikonians team could make an informed decision.

Just a thought.

Putting my two cents in... There is an abstract gallery, yet not an abstract forum. Seems there is a forum for the other galleries. I would think though, that we would need to possibly rename it/them Abstract and Digital photo Art or something along those lines. To me, just because a photo has been changed to the look of a watercolor or such doesn't make it abstract. I do on occasion shoot a subject ,planning to make it look like a drawing or one of the other limited effects I have access to right now.
I would probably post to it,but would be just as happy staying with fewer forums.
