The Challenge

Hi members of DSLR Users Group.
It’s time for another Challenge.
Let’s try and capture a great Macro. Some of you are very experienced, others perhaps have never tried macro photography before.
Why not give it a go and see what you can come up with?
The scope for this challenge is very broad; items around the home, garden, town, country. Old, New, Natural, Mechanical, Man-made, human, animal, insect, living, decaying. Light, colour, shape, form. Abstract, pattern, texture, creative…. Go for it!

Judging / Voting Criteria

You can vote on as many images as you like, but the ones that gets the most votes will win this challenge.
