Macro Moments Challenge: Week 9

This week, you, my blog visitors, get to vote for the winner of last week’s challenge!  

The gallery below contains all of the wonderful entries!  Now you know how hard it is for me to choose each week!  Look carefully at each entry and choose the one that you think is the best all around, considering it’s detail, composition and the story that it tells. Then cast your vote (only one vote allowed per person) in the poll below the gallery.  You do not have to be a participant in the challenge to vote!  The winner will be announced next week.

Hover over each photo if you don’t see it’s number–

Our weekly challenge also continues this week, with the theme “Inanimate Object”.  

For the purpose of the challenge, inanimate is defined as neither plant or animal.

I shot this chess piece and ladybug pin when I was learning to use my macro lens

A new challenge begins each Wednesday, and I announce the winner from the previous week when I post the new challenge. The winner’s photo will be featured on this blog, used as the banner in the announcement for the next week’s challenge, unless I am requested not to use it. 

Here’s how the challenge works:

  • Choose a favorite macro photo of an inanimate object  from the past week or from your archives. 
  • Create a new post on your blog entitled “Macro Moments: Week (insert week)“.
  • Add the photo to your post and a brief description. I would love to know, as I am sure others would, too,  what camera and lens you used and your settings.
  • You may submit more than one photo, but submit each in a separate post if you want to be included in the judging.
  • Deadline for submitting your entries is 8:00 a.m. Tuesday, Pacific Time.
  • * Create a  pingback to this post and/or leave a link to your post in the comments section.
  • Tag your post Macro Moments so others can find it.

* If you’re not sure how to create a pingback,  Here are instructions

    Some awesome entries and it was SO difficult choosing one for the poll – I like that there’s a way of participating just in the reader poll if unable to do anything else for this event too. Best wishes all, Colette.

    All the photos are great which made it a very hard choice. I was torn between 2 and 4. Thanks for sharing this fun challenge with the others at the Senior Salon.
