Abstract Attack! - Nature
This is the first of a series of News articles I plan on posting, writing about Abstract photography and what I noticed while going through thousands upon thousands of images on DeviantArt.
First up: Nature!
A search for "nature" in the Newest section of Photography->Abstract & Surreal->Abstract yields a little over 3500 results.
Some of the things I noticed...
1) Too. Many. Photoshop. Filters. I'm sure this would be noticed in any search of DA's extensive Photography section, but c'mon. I must have seen hundreds of images that the respective artists should have categorized under Photomanipulation. Three of the worst offenders: Glowing Edges, Polar Coordinates, and Twirl.
Taking a bad picture and messing it up some more does not make it abstract, it just makes it a bad, messed up photomanipulation.
2) Lots of close-ups of wood. And I mean tons. Some were good, most were not. Luckily, no wood in a "human anatomy" sense was to be found.
3) Keyword abuse. As in, "He

Around the World 2
With Spring beginning to show it's signs i was once again thinking about the vast world in which we live and I was thinking we should all share the beauty of where we come from. Everywhere is different, different cultures and landscape and I thougt we should celebrate the diversity and beauty of what surrounds us... Hopefully this time I have managed to select a number of photos that shows a broad range of countries... so here is the photos I have selected to show you the beauty of the world we live in:

Hip Hop History Month - Part I
Hip Hop Day - 12.nov.
A culture that doesn't have sex, race, age, religion, political view, sexual orientation, country or leader. A culture that believes and sustains equal rights and treatment for everyone, arts, knowledge, freedom of speech and expression and self elevation through practice. A culture that, over 30 years of existence, has educated and disciplined youngsters and made a mark ON society and IN society as well. A culture that is free, available and there for everyone to embrace it. Something that lives thru dance, music, paint and  is the spirit of thousands and thousands human ways of expression. You either feel and understand it or you don't. It's not what MTV or some teenage magazine says it is... it ain't the bling, it ain't the goat teeth, it ain't pimps, it ain't the booty girls, it ain't expensive clothes and drinks and sure ain't the money ! It's the DJ, it's the MC, it's the bboy or bgirl, it's the graff writer, it's the hip hop head, it's the beatbox

Stunning portrait works, some of them I recognize, others are new to me.  I'm particularly fond of the Ray Charles portrait, but it was Brood that drew me to her gallery.  Look deep in the eyes and be amazed at the emotions created there.

great gallery. I really like your work you have a great sense of composition. I have a few photos of landscapes and abstractions. Have a look you like them but I haven't done any photography in a while now. Comments would appreciated. Thanks. Keep up the good work.
