As I haven't been out in a while I'm making up for it with shooting lots!

Here are some abstracts from the shoreline. All K1 and either Sigma 20mm or DA* 60-250mm

like all the images 1,3 and 11 faves . would be tempted to have a play with colour gradients on them just for fun, giving different shapes different colours. Good to see you getting out .
odd lens or 2

Good experimenting. I prefer the ones that are more abstract, e.g. prefer 9 rather than 4.

In a way it's a good feeling to get lost in the patterns.

Agree with HarisF1.

I find these sort of shots difficult to pull off, the picture omits the surrounding context that is important at the time it is taken. So the stronger the abstract pattern and texture the better. Have you experimented with more extreme processing (false colour etc.) to emphasise pattern and texture - a picture rather than a photograph? Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't...

Thanks all. Weirdly 6 and 9 are my favourites and the others I like but didn't think they were a patch on them and they appear to be the least favourite Just goes to show just how personal photography is
