I've cleaned up this thread and here are your entries. Thanks to all of you who took the time to enter. I saw some real discussions with this months topic and I liked that.

Remember...when you vote, you need to vote for the photo that you think is the BEST "Macro" photograph.

This month's prize will be #3 from the following loot. (a bag of Havoc swim baits)

Good luck to everyone.

That is better if you don't have a macro lens. Out of all the photos you've posted....the reel is the closest to being a "macro" shot. I guess I wasn't prepared for all the discrepancies that this topic can cause.

Maybe this will help..... [-o< .

Here are many examples of macro photos: https://www.google.com/search?q=macro+p ... 0&bih=1039

Macrophotography is: close-up photography, usually of very small subjects. Classically a macrophotograph is one in which the size of the subject on the negative/film plane is greater than life size. However in modern use it refers to a finished photograph of a subject at greater than life size.

What I don't want to see (for example) is a cropped photo of the "man on first base" that has been taken from a photo of the entire field. Make sense? Most digital cameras today (even cheaper ones) have settings for "close up" photos. That is what you should be using.

If you have any questions....don't hesitate to ask. Again....I guess I wasn't prepared for all the discrepancies that this topic can cause. #-o

Found this flower in the yard just after the frost had melted one morning. It is about he size of a penny/nickel.

I only cropped and flipped this image - (you should see the version I did by merging two photos photoshop) - I may change the photo before contest end if I'm allowed

APRIL THEME "MACRO" (or close up if you don't have a macro lens)

I'm stressing that photos submitted have to be a Macro/close up shot. If you have questions or concerns about your photo...please don't hesitate to ask me. I am the official judge of what qualifies as Macro. :mrgreen:

Also....the photo you submit must have been shot after April 1, 2011. I'm going to trust that each member holds themselves accountable with this rule.


OK just to clarify, shot after April first of last year is ok? Not April 1st this year? My entry was shot March 30th 2012.

Dogwoods didn't last long this year. Just a minor level tweak to put a little more light in, no cropping, or color changes.

it shows the oar crack I'm trying to repair and the background scenery isn't too bad.

Had a spare moment the other day to snap this shot in the backyard.

B/W conversion done in Silver Efex Pro 2, so let me know if that exceeds the rules, Chris. No problem here if I need to remove it.
