It draws one in - beautiful image - then one reads that it's algae and an emotional dissonance is triggered. Great!

From the other comments, it appears I'm not alone in how this one just drew me in completely. I was amazed and delighted to read what it actually was - that's what abstraction is all about; giving the eye a visual amusement park in which it can play!

Very interesting. Simple, but compelling. I bet this photo really gets people's attention and there are as many interpretations of it as there are viewers. V
