    I think this is most excellent, Jeremy. To me, it is part violin, part bridge, part building, part something else. Definitely has a Venetian aura and the tones add to that impression. I will say that I don’t like having my eyes lead out of the frame to the right and would wonder about the emotional impact if it was flipped horizontally, but that’s almost worse than cropping! 😉 Enigmatic for sure.
    Ah! I just saw the tag, gondola, spoiled it for me. I’d rather the mystery.

    I kike this very much. A very graphically abstract composition.

    Would only wonder what would happen if the vertical of the “gondola’s head” was indeed vertical? It may be even more abstract, as the angle still implies “boat” – at least to me…

    Applause! 👏

    Mike.

     

    Brings to mind Robert Bateman’s words about an abstract of his: “This is a painting. It’s not a painting of anything. It’s a painting.”

    Thanks, all. Serendipity: accidental underexposure because I forgot to reset compensation, much exaggerated.

    Though I recognized it as a gondola, it also suggests a musical instrument.

    Bravo for the abstraction.

    Regards,
