It’s a Small World in September
The subject for the September online competition was “Macro” so gone were the wide expanses of the seascapes of August and in came a world in miniature. Popular subjects were, as always, flowers and insects with only a couple of people choosing something different (although I’m not sure if the author “20 Quid” meant it as an entry or a bribe to the judge!). Macro is a fascinating area but many people equate it to expensive and specialised lenses. You can, though, start off with some very cheap extension tubes and your existing lenses – results can be surprisingly good. Anyway, the judge this month is Robert Bilton so it’s up to him to get his magnifying glass out and determine who is deserving of awards this month. As always the gallery is below for your own assessment and results should be published in the next few days.
