Lets not call it a competition, but a challenge. :) I am at least challenged to find more abstract nature situations while out and about in nature. The idea of finding something different from the mainstream is most fun. I agree with you on the attention and critiques when it comes to this kind of photography, but for me its more about the quality of the critiques received then the amount. I know you agree on that one as well.
Thanks for the kind words,
