2017 Digital Abstract: Gold Medal

Curves by John Ford

Abstract photography is a really fun genre as it allows us to take a photo of an everyday object or scene, and then through the use of our skills with camera and computer create something quite different, perhaps even an image that is inspiring and evocative. With this image I set out to create a picture that would be a little like a magic trick, in that it would grab the viewers' attention and have them wondering what exactly is that, or what is it supposed to be?
Hopefully I have achieved that and like a magician I am not going to say exactly how a made the image as it might lose some of that magic! My desire was also that rather than tell a story the image would encourage viewers to imagine a story that would fit with the image as they see it, and stay in their heads like a good song.
