*Official* Bimmerpost photo contest no.82 | "Macro"

I know not everyone has a macro lens, but this should be an interesting contest. Most kit lenses have a macro focus distance so while you wont be an inch away, you can still get pretty close.

Bonus imaginary points if you can get a photo that has everyone guessing what the subject is.

Submissions will close on February 28th, 2014.

1. Any interpretation of the theme that falls within Bimmerpost.com rules is welcome.
2. You must be the person that took the photo. Photos taken prior to the start of the contest are acceptable as long as you are the one that captured the image.
3. One submission per contest, and you cannot resubmit a photo that you've submitted before in a previous contest.
4. Images must be no larger than 1024 px in any direction. Links to larger images are allowed but you must have one that is no more than 1024 px for the poll.
5. All contestants must host their own pictures (which includes hosting them on Bimmerpost).
6. All images must have a title.
7. While post processing in Photoshop is allowed, adding or removing parts of the picture is not. In the event a photo is suspected to be "photo-chopped," the contestant will be asked to provide the original picture.

Ah, how quickly we forget... The topic of Contest #54 from a couple of years ago was "Insects" and might generate much of the same material. Since I have a whole pile of bug shots I figure I'll try posting some non-bug macro:

I don't see the voting poll yet. Maybe you can still get in.

Nate sent me a note saying that he was banned from the Off Topic Forums and he can't put up the poll. I've been busy this week with work, but I can probably find time to do it this weekend. Of course, if anyone wants to volunteer to get it up earlier, then we can get going again faster.

Let's keep the voting period to three or five days. There are only six entries, so we don't need a long time. I'd like to see us get rolling again. We've had some long contests recently. Why don't we get back to allowing two weekends for entries and then let's just vote for five-days? We need to get some momentum back.

Finally, A Voting Poll

See Voting Poll here:

http://www.zpost.com/forums/showthread.php?t=956525

It's only going to be open for three-days in an effort to get back on track.

I posted this poll because the contest host was banned from the Off Topics Forums. (Play nice boys). Where are the girls???
