You are welcome clevermax. Oddly enough, I developed my understanding of abstract concept through two decades of working in object oriented design and architecture design. The idea of abstract is very useful in many industries, it enables us to understand complex and huge amount of data without getting into details.

If you form the idea, compose it and then click, then it is a composition. Abstract photography needs a very advance level of composition.

If you click first and then try to make sense out of it, it is called an ink-blot test.

To quote Ansel Adams, "There is nothing worse than a sharp image of a fuzzy concept."
Thanks Samurai, i think i get your point ,
Are you an Architect ? Sorry for the silly question but just curious after reading your other post.

Deky this looks much better than the de-saturated one. Give it a tight crop, increase the color tone by a few points and you have a good shot at your disposal.

Solutions architect, product architect... in that sense. It involves lot of abstract thinking.
