While many abstracts are photos that have been heavily manipulated in photoshop, there are other ways of creating these somewhat mysterious images. The method used for this image was rather simple, a combination of a long exposure (5 seconds), wind, and light panting via a LED flashlight. While the mystery of the subject is part of what makes abstracts interesting, I'll let you know what object was photographed to make this colourful array of light.
Yes this humble June Lily was the source of the abstract image. The image came about as a result of experimenting with different exposures and panting the flower with light for highlighting points of interest. Unfortunately the wind made it impossible to do what I had originally set out to do, so I attempted to do something else, and came up with other images in stead.
