Abstract Snapmatic Camera Obscura [Pic Heavy]

Now technically, yes, its a sunset. And a car. But I feel this particular shot is much more about colour, shape and contrast than it is about "here is my car at sunset". Which would look more like...
Just curious, but can you and Hentia explain why you hide your posts behind spoilers when there's nothing to spoil?

From the abstract to the surreal...

That was my thinking on these 2...
Although not so much colour on the second

Anyone knows how to get rid of the black framing on the side?
Giving me breaking bad tease for some reason

Well, this thread had been deleted for unknown reasons, and thanks to Tiger & Raavi for leading in the right directions, it's back and I'm grateful! Thank you both!
And it came up in some discussion about what the word "abstract" means and how it's perceived. The intention of the thread was to promote an indulgent examination of the fine details in GTAO that are so easily overlooked or dismissed as we play. The "abstract" nature is the almost unrecognizable yet beautiful spot that might make us take pause to admire.
Here's my latest example, in effort to keep this thread positive, relevant, and worthy of an on-going conversation about GTA, art, and how they both play a role in our culture.
Would love to see more contributions to this discussion! Cheers!

I love it all, so I'm a bit biased. I have a bizarre taste for visuals, so for me – they're all amazing! Just that we're all taking time to see things a little different... it's great.
Here's a couple more to, hopefully, inspire:

There's a difference between "surreal" and "abstract," though the two can often intermingle.
I love the graphic surrealism of the hearses and the church, and the colors and shapes surrounding the Coquette (?) make it a very appealing location.
Here's something I took tonight. While definitely abstract, it's surreal as well. I mean, we all recognize sun coming in through a window, but it's a fiery haze, making it unclear just what the heck is going on! It was in the hanger at Sandy Shores airport where I finished a Gang Fight.
