About This Group

This Group is for all those who take extreme close-ups shots of anything and everything (within reason) but please remember that this is a family orientated group

As the name suggests, an extreme version of a close up generally magnifies beyond that which the human eye would experience in reality. An extreme close-up of an animal’s face, for instance, would show only the mouth or eyes, without any background detail whatsoever

*Please read this detailed explanation of micro.macro close up before submitting an image for moderation

The Group is open to anyone and everyone who can submit close-up captures to the extreme, showing that which isn’t normally seen by the naked eye unless you were right on top of it.

The image below belongs to a fantastic artist and winner of our “Faces Only, Bugs or Insects” Challenge by name of Jim Cumming called Yikes – Praying Mantis, and is a perfect example of what we are looking for in the Extreme Close-Ups Group.
Please visit “Jim’s home page”http://www.redbubble.com/people/darby8";: and see what a great artist he is. The image give the perfect indication of what we would like to see posted in the Group
