I've got one image that is pretty abstract - but I'm not sure it would work in competition. I imagine the title would become even more important?

Yes they do - Ask Barton. Also, is there a recognizable photographic image somewhere in/under the artwork?

Okay Jeff, but I'm more scared to post these than portraits... :o

The title 'Spin Art' came to mind...

I haven't worked on the presentations yet, obviously.

I have another I also like but it's on a computer I can't access right now.

I saw an abstract score 100 at a local competition and get hung at Image. Don't remember if it went loan, merit or what after it left the state.

Yes abstracts can do well in comptetion.
Casandra, It is way too hard to tell with the spinning image on a low res file. I need to see how well it is handled between layers, sharpness etc. My instinct is that it is not carried far enough or it needs . . . something. To hard to tell with out it worked up as you would feel it should be. Abstract images are a case by case situation and I just can't tell on an unfinished image. Sorry for the cop out
