:o Did that suject line say something about a prize?

:cool: Yes it did! :tu:





Here's the deal folks , stop frolicking around the May Pole for a minute and read this.
All FPZ members and lurkers who need to become members are invited to participate in the FPZ Marvelous May Macro & Close Focus Shoot Out.

The Rules:
1) Contest open to all FPZ members.
2) Pictures to be taken and posted between uhhh.. Now and Midnight 5/31/11 your local time.
3)Each member may enter 1 color and/or 1 B/W and/or 1 "What in the wide world of sports is that?" photo. To clarify ... feel free to post as many pics as you'd like(it helps keep the thread going) but before the deadline you must declare only one picture per catagory as your entry.
4)Entries to be Macro or Close Focus shots.
5)Entries can be changed , modified , deleted , replaced etc. up to the closing time.
6)You may not enter close ups of your (or anyone else's) private parts.Not even in the "What in the wide world of sports is that?" catagory
7) All official entries must be titled.

Judging:
1) Entries to be judged by member vote. If voting does not provide clear winning results or in case of a tie a panel of judges may be appointed.
2)Voters are stongly urged to not be technical macro purists. A well composed close focus shot of an interesting subject should be given equal consideration. "Macro Abstracto" should also be considered.
Basically what I'm saying here is that setting up a bellows rig focussed on a sugar grannual and waiting for an ant to show up probably isn't the way to go.. but hey I've been wrong before!

The prize :gift: :
The winner will be given a choice of several "donated" items from the big box of stuff or the film freezer.
No it won't be a new car :car: , airplane :fly: or DSLR package :cam: . Think more in line with Ralphy's Dad's Major Award :hb: :p :D

Remember just because this is a month long contest you don't have to wait till the last minute to post (see rule # 5). Have fun and "Lets Get Small"

Thanks for setting this up DRN. My only question/wish, is could we do more than just one color and/or one b&w like maybe 2 or 3? I'm ok with 1/1 but it might be nice for a few more each. Totally up to you of course.

Most tempting contest, especially since I checked out what Ralphie's Dad's Major Award was.

Tim , members are encouraged to post as many pictures as they want but in the end I think we all need to decide which is our personal best and declare it as the entry / entries.

WTH is that fuzzy looking thing on the peach coloured slice? :~(

Bugs are fascinating, but freak me out in macros!

They are like aliens from a galaxy far, far away.

I think Mr. P's 1st shot is a cricket of some sort. I've seen cave crickets that look like Mr. P's little fella on steroids.

BCB, I'm curious about the background in your rose. It sets off the colors very nicely and naturally.

mikeSF, an outstanding bee capture in profile. Really sharp.
