I'm still at it trying to do abstracts and it ain't easy. Here's my go at another one. What do you think? I value your opinions. Thanks much, shrl

PS maybe the title should be: Morning After Headache!

the little tails trailing after some of the 'spots' seem to be swimming...
there is a sensation of action captured and revealed
really great effect.

and if art was that easy to create everyone could do it
we are special!

I like the general idea and think that you are on to something. For me, personally, it feels like this image could even be stronger. The main issue I have is that the pure white dominates the overall picture, which is a pity as the background is interesting as well. I would try to variate the stars some more by using some glaze layer of blue, yellow, maybe purple, to some of them so that they feel more distributed. Just me, ignore at will.
