Light catches the edges of stone stairs somewhere in Linlithgow Palace.
I can't imagine any opinions in between love and hate for this one.

I'd get that flashgun fixed Bill.

Such well worn steps in this old Scottish palace. A sight few will have recognised as they walked around here.

How about 'undecided'? Wink

No, seriously. I like it. No harm in 'pushing the envelope' once in a while.

Glad you told us what this was. Like Barb and joolsb, I'm not sure. I think perhaps a few more steps might have made a difference but I'm afraid I have to sit on the fence here Bill.

Yes I think you are right about divided opinions Bill but it still has to be commented on. I find myself Loving to hate it but on the hand hating to love it. Where does that leave me...I haven't a bloody clue but I am just about to ring Prudhoe hospital to see if they have a bed for the night that maybe I could have.

One for the gallery walls here Bill,so all these arty farty types can gush about the meaning of the Universe,
and other such things !!
I actually like it,although I would have preferred seeing Jupiter lying in the rule of thirds with Saturn and Uranus !!

Your imagination is much too critical. At the same time images like this need imagination (what is "imagination", if not a derivative of "image"? Or is it the other way around? You know what I mean!) - first, on the part of the photographer; thereafter, on the part of the viewer. It's a fine shot, and it conjures up many thoughts in my mind: a peek through slightly closed eyes allows me to believe I'm looking at a series of waves; another makes me think I'm looking at three naked forms in repose; and then on closer inspection, I see it for what it is.

Good processing too, by the way.

Regards.

Bob

I like to see experiments being aired here - and it's definitely an abstract for the wall.

Yes, very mysterious and intriguing! We could have been guessing from now until Christmas as to what the subject was Wink

Love it or hate it I am not sure but one thing that is for sure is I have spent more time looking at it than any other image today, I just find it mysterious. - gary

Given that you've told us what it is Bill, I think it's great! But if you hadn't, I would still have loved the title Smile

A tad more light to reveal more of the stone, but then it may have lost the intrigue, Bill.

I'm actually sorry you revealed what it was right up-front.
It certainly makes a fascinating abstract, and for me anyway, I'm in the 'love' camp.

This is a very clever image Bill, the longer you view it the more detail you see.

So peaceful and image - I could look at it for hours. And see something different every time I viewed. Right now it looks like long alien fingers reaching out. Just now it was moonlight catching cliff top ridges. LOVE this!
