- Macro & detail
- Date taken:
- 1/25s f/8 ISO 400 35mm
- Weekly Challenge - Show Us Your Macro Images (ends April 19, 2015). Thanks @skypilot (Linda!)) for this weeks theme and congrats on your win in the previous challenge..!!
Please note! this is NOT your standard Image Comment/Critique thread! So, PLEASE KEEP READING! Rather, it is a new idea that a few of us have come up with to allow you to show, and have your images voted on - and, it won't cost you a single Token... Ready? This will be fun.. BUT - Please Read the Instructions on How to Enter and How to Vote in my post below starting off with "Instructions".
And for those who might wonder - the contest image was taken with my Nikon D200 of one of my orchids with a macro 35mm Nikkor lens (manual - notice the short DOF even @f/8). In full bloom, the bloom is less then 1".
Any chance of reviving the weekly challenge John?Helpful 1 2 March 2016

This is meant to be a fun weekly challenge for all Focussion friends and members. You can enter either photos you have taken previously - or even new photos taken during the week that the contest runs!
How to Enter a photo for the weekly contest: In this SAME THREAD, you will see a button called REVISION just below the main weekly theme photo and above the first reply. BUT BEFORE UPLOADING! - Please resize your image to 1200 pixels on the largest side - that is important! Next - write a little something about entry - and press REVISION - and you will be able to UPLOAD a photo into this thread. Then - hit the button Post Feedback after your entry has uploaded. It is that easy! however - if your "revision" is outside the theme for the week, I will delete it ;)
How to Vote for you favorite Images this is the easy part! If you see an image that you really like - and think should WIN the weekly challenge - just click the "Helpful" link under that picture.! The person with the most "Helpful" votes at the end of the week - wins, and chooses the theme for the following week. And, of course - you can vote for all entries - but - that's a little counter-productive to deciding who has the best image..
Anyway - I hope this works...
AND OH - PLEASE ONLY POST IMAGES FOR THE WEEKLY CHALLENGE AS A REVISION IN THIS THREAD!!! If you post them as a new image thread, they don't count in the voting - and - they will cost you Tokens to post...
