Abstraction in green

A rather popular shot from my recent Shanghai trip, turning ceiling lighting decoration into an abstract photograph. Some of the comments I received: "One of those photos where the repeated object creates an irregular pattern despite it's regular shape", "Classic Art Rock shot! It's lovely, patterned, has beautiful color, and completely abstract. It has it all", "Somehow it's almost an optical illusion", and "Boggles the mind with endless patterns". With a handheld exposure time of  two tenths of a second, this was quite a challenge technically!
