Abstract by insolitus85 Abstract by insolitus85
Rotterdam, The Netherlands, December 2010

This is actually one of the first photos I made with my 5dmkII after taking it out of the box. Funny that I only see it's value a year later. This one really had to grow on me. And the use of monochrome and the square format helped too.


[EDIT]
A DD!!!! Now that is unexpected! :faint: :XD:
Thank you so much `dragonfly-oli, `Quolia and `DpressedSoul.

Simply because the artist brought it.
The viewer might not understand, feel, appreciate... it, of course, that is his right, but it doesn't make the art work less artistic, just maybe less popular :)

ok, sure it's abstract, but is there any story behind it, or symbolism? Call me simple-minded, but this is a simple picture with no essence as far as i can see. Im sorry but this, to me, is not art; if yo wanna see true art, look in my favs gallery.

Pardon me, but I felt the need to put in my own two-cents here.

What is "art" to you, may not necessarily be "art" to others. Because art is an expression of feelings, and we all express ourselves in different ways.
I think this picture is gorgeous and mystifying. Sure, it may have meaning to the photographer, and not to you or me...but i'm fine with that, because it makes it all the more interesting to look at.

If you don't see it, try looking beyond what you see on the surface. Think about it in more ways than one. ;)

And sorry, but I don't believe in "true art". Although I am glad you said your favs, and not your personal gallery. :D

I don't agree with everything awarded a DD either. But unfortunately, I can't change the fact that it is indeed awarded a DD.

Thank you, I'm glad you do. I didn't get angry, no. But several others did.

I don't mean to pry, but I'm assuming the reason behind your comment was you don't see the significance/glory/"art" of this deviation.
Think of it as a drop of water. That drop could be a tear of sadness, or joy. It could be a sign of happiness, or hope. It could even mean an omen to some people. But to others, it'll just be a drop of water; nothing less and nothing more.
To me, this is more than an abstract piece of art work. It shows that beauty can be hidden, and simplicity carries its own uniqueness. It also reminds me of a good friend of mine that I will always hold dear to my heart.
I'm also awestruck that this is actually a lamp! It makes it very interesting to look at!

I'm very happy you acknowledge that your comment was a bit bold. I understand things slip, and that a simple comment can turn into a massive argument. Which is the very reason I do not intend to lash out at you, and I sincerely hope I didn't come across that way.

What is the exact definition of art? Why can't art be simple? How do you even define simple?

:icondpressedsoul:
DpressedSoul Featured By Owner Dec 22, 2011  Hobbyist Photographer
Abstraction is about freeing the artwork from any objective context - so if you can't see a story behind it the artist has obviously done everything right. ;)

And about your faves...they are showing your partiality for certain styles of art, but that doesn't mean that anything that you don't like isn't art. Please don't insult an artist who has put thought and efforts in a creative process instead of just trying to copy anyone else's work.

Ok, now I'm not so much criticizing the artwork, more just the comments and daily deviation. People are glorifying something that lacks expression, feeling, or imagination. This person has better, more interesting things in their gallery that deserve DD more than this. Maybe there's something I'm not "seeing" in this picture that makes it so amazingly gorgeous. Tell me what you're seeing. What makes it so interesting/inspiring?
