  • Great abstact photo the grain is very cool :)

  • without the description, i could’ve mistaken this for the glowing head of a long-necked dino-monster.. :D it’s indeed a cool abstract.. :)

  • Awesome shot. I have a horrible eye when it comes to findning beauty in the abstract like this.

  • very evocative. feels like reaching and falling at the same time. the digital noise feels much more like grain instead of noise. very nice.
