you lost me in the detail but the idea alone is worth the effort, it works very well for me and i love the colours in the segments, makes it look like a magical necklace. the longer you look, the more your eye finds in there.

Love the image, glad you explained what it is and how you did it because I would have had no idea! It reminds me of the spirograph pictures my sister did as a kid.

I missed the dragonfly on first look but now I know it's there I find myself drawn to it and it's ghostly shadow behind it.

With abstracts it's always difficult to suggest mods, as I find they tend to move away from what was wanted in the first place. My only question is on the principle turquoise colour used. Is that the actual colour and then tweaked, or was it different? Did you think of trying it in different colours such as red or green to compare the results?

Thanks for posting, its a great pic.

Thanks Robin, the origional colour was green but it was a little to dull to stand out so yes tweaked in elements. Thanks for your feedback I had tried some red also a on another version but it looked a bit violent.
Thanks for noticing the shadow, thats a major bit of what i liked too.
Cheers monthly critic buddy Smile

That's a strange effect and reminds me of the spirograph drawing. I find the presentation too heavy which takes away from the pattern. I think a thin frame would have been better. Also you probably needed about one stop more light to get the effect appearing brighter and more prominent form the dark background.

an intriguing abstract image, I like the colour and the 'trapped' dragonfly.
Rather than have the image horizontal I wonder whether it might be more dynamic to have the image at an angle within the frame so that the dragonfly looks to be travelling upwards?
