This category is a real challenge for all those who work within this genre - as no photo can be truly abstract, because photography is always of something. Each finalist in this category has used a broad range of photographic techniques to create ambiguity and abstraction - rising to the challenge of making the familiar somewhat more mysterious and intriguing. Ultimately, Pat Kay's use of colour and motion took the top prize, but we were impressed by the craft in all three final images.
