Definition: A photograph of an apparatus,  or part thereof, designed to apply mechanical power or to carry out some mechanical function. It must consist of several parts, each with its own function.


Definition: Images entered into the Abstract set subject competition must challenge the viewer to make their own interpretation of the subject and/or its original context or condition.
They may isolate a fragment from a natural or physical scene in order to remove its inherent context from the viewer, it may be purposely staged to create a seemingly unreal appearance from real objects, or it may involve the use of color, light, shadow, texture, shape and/or form to convey a feeling, sensation or impression.

Still Life           

Still life photography is a genre of photography used for the depiction of inanimate subject matter, typically a small group of objects. It is the application of photography to the still life artistic style. An example is food photography.
