    I like the second one. I find it pleasing and I could imagine it on my wall.

    Two good photos, Jason.

    To me, the curve of the object in the first photo is a bit of a distraction; it somehow makes it a bit less "abstract", if you know what I mean.
    I really like the second shot, though. Like Clive, I would be happy to have that suitably mounted on my wall.

    I like the first one because of the curve; it's a really strong diagonal that complements the rest of the image. I think I would like that one even more if the top left corner was as sharp as the rest of the image and if there was more detail in that area, but I'm not sure.

    Hi Jason, technical details aside, for me the big difference in the two images is uniqueness.

    The first looks like a front loading washing machine. Ho-hum, very common.

    The second one gives no clue as to what it is so I look at the colors, patterns and textures. Neat! They may both be parts of the same image but the uniqueness of the second image makes it far more interesting IMHO.

    To clarify my previous comment in the context of the other astute comments in the thread, it doesn't matter to me that the second image is more abstract than the first one. I prefer the first image because of its appearance, regardless of the label, such as "abstract," that is or isn't assigned to it.

    Pretty simple for someone with not one art cell - it is #1 for me.

    I like the second one slightly better, however, I would prefer the first one if the picture was taken with the container touching the center of the bottom of the image. A picture taken like this would put more emphasis on the bubbles as they rise, and less emphasis on the curve of the container.
