There were many proposals for this month theme, so I made a compromise and I hope everyone is happy after reading short instructions...

So theme is "Macro" but the target/object can be any; cat, bus, fish, sushi , bird, moon or sun. Last two of the list are
almost impossible to implement because the photo must be taken at macro range...

Here is one example:




(Copy/paste rules)

Photos must be taken during this month (after theme is announced?)
Photos must be taken by the posting member
Photos must be taken with a camera phone
Users post only one photo per entry
Users can change the entry only once
Users must name the phone they used (software would be nice too?)

Last three days of this month are for voting

Ladies and Gentlemen... Start your phonecameras...

(BTW, the plural of "gentleman" is "gentlemen" )

This will be fun. I have a strong feeling we will see at least one photo of sushi very close up...

no, i already crossed the line to shameless self plugging in absence of a different darkness pic and borderlined at many other occasions.
Note to self, refrain from last minute plan c pics at work.

Nice topic!
I did not participate as early as macro was going down last time.

Actually I liked your photo very much for the "Darkness" competition, but it didn't match the topic as well as a few others.

I found myself wondering, "Just what constitutes macro in a photography sense?"

Wikipedia makes some efforts to define it, which I paraphrase and list in no particular order:

An extreme closeup where . . .

1. Subject in finished photo is larger than life.
2. Subject appears larger than life on film, negative or image sensor.
3. Subject appears larger than life on camera display/viewfinder.
4. Made with a lens with a reproduction ratio of at least 1:1.
5. Subject vertical height is 24mm or less.

Clearly, a picture of the sun that is larger than the sun itself will require more than all the monitors to display . . .

I didn't realize there were so many available definitions, but I bet we could get more if we asked around on the internet.

Anyway, I'll do my best with something. Thanks for the challenge.

I don't know where you live but from my place the sun is never larger than my hand. My monitor is bigger than that

You can take macro pictures of celestial objects, in the same way you take a macro of an elephant. You just take a closup of its surface. The problem might be the cost. I cannot afford a flight ticket to Kenya or wherever the elephants grow but you might. But I doubt even you could buy a ticket to the sun. Besides, an elephant may allow you to come close enough to macro but I don't think the sun would be that friendly.

This part is a bit confusing! Does this mean there is a limitation on the dimension of subject we shoot? Sun, Elephant or even a Cat is out of the frame, if that is the case!

Or did I get it wrong?
