Like abstract art, Abstract photography concentrates on shape, form, colour, pattern and texture. The viewer is often unable to see the whole object. The focus is often only a small part of it. Viewers of an abstract shot may only know the essence of the abstraction or understand it by what is implied. Normally the object or image will not be a literal view of the subject.
The abstract must be man-made.
Your image must be about doors.
Figurative or literal intepretations permitted.
Competition topic is "Suspense".
A photographic portrait which is a representation of a living person, especially the face, OR a photograph in which the subject, the human body, is the primary interest.

The backgrounds may include statues or paintings of people, providing these are NOT the primary subject.
Pet and animal portraits are excluded.
There are no restrictions on location (indoors or outdoors) nor on lighting (ambient or artificial) however both must be CONSIDERED and CONTROLLED.
