hI Rende,
This image caught my eye and then I found it was one of yours. I love the technique. I am wondering what does this image symbolise to you. My daughter is in awe of your work and is only using the site to communicate with you regarding your work.

The lighting on the rope gives extra impact to this fine abstract.

Not just a rope is it Rende, it smacks of ships and the sea, the blue's and rusty red, and strength denoted by the rope, that is what abstract is all about making you use your imagination, it means what you wish it to mean! a grand image Rende, regards Leon.GrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin

Just wonderful. The light catching the acid tones in the rope, that strange, surreal abstract 'landscape' beyond. Gorgeous colours.

Your use of the light is wonderful, Rende.
When the presence of so much contrasting tone would normally be expected to lead the eye away from the rope the acute concentration of focus in fact acts like an optical magnet and draws us inexorably back.
Quite magnificent.
As Pascal might say, "chapeau!"

This is an excellent use of the lensbaby. It is so artfully captured, and pleasing to the eye. You have used it like a painter uses a brush. Bravo!!!!

Beautiful light on the rope, superb texture. Love the abstract-y background. I like this shot a lot - spells nautical to me, Rende.

The light hitting the rope is beautiful, and perfect - the extreme bend of the lb has created a beautiful abstract background.

My eyes are torn between the sharply in focus rope and the mysterious area to the right; which I am sure was what you intended all along. Is it a city, or a harbour or . . .
Pleased to give click No. 30 for a well-deserved Reader's Choice, and an equally well-deseerved UA as well.

A fine bit of light on the rope Rende.
It shows off the colour and texture a treat.
Good shot.

have to agree with this statement, do wonder however if it should be slightly moved a tad to the right
