Great abstract, colours and patterns are very different!

That really appeals as an abstract.

Well, it's certainly interesting. I'd never have guessed it was part of a burnt-out car. It reminds me of a seascape, and someone has opened the plug-hole to let all the water out, lol. Very good use of colour, texture and dof.

An interesting abstract that works well. From the thumbnail, I was guessing it was a little geothermal spring or something. Smile

I think you've used depth of field very well here, in that the far parts ore distinctly blurred but not completely smoothed out. However, since that square hole is definitely the focus of the viewer's attention, I think it would be better placed in the sharpest region of the photograph; the lens is actually focused a little way behind it.

I might also try to position the hole a little farther up the frame. It's quite close to the bottom edge, here, which means that the viewer's eye has a bit of a tendency to fall out of the picture. (But maybe you couldn't move it up because there's not enough car out of frame to the bottom.)
