Re: Abstract C&C please!
First, your question about it being abstract. I wouldn't consider it as so, for the reason that, to over simply a bit for effect, I can recognise what it is. I think an abstract image has got to go right out-of-the-box in terms of removing a sense of reality. So, I would say it's getting towards being a graphic image that's very much abouit line, shape, tone and texture, but is not abstract.
In terms of focusing - Good on you for setting yourself this challenge to master manual focusing. Once you are the master of that you will feel more 'in control' of your work and, whilst you can and will use auto-focusing, you will have that better understanding of what's going on and how you manage what auto-focus gives you.
Have you studies papers/articles on hyperfocal distance? Sean tutorial on here and this one, I have referred to often before cover all that, I think, needs to be said on the subject. Both are very, very good.
