This months theme is Wide Angle Closeups. For this months theme we go against the convention and instead of using long lenses for our closeups we use wide angle lenses. The difference is that wide angle closeups offer strong perspective distortions which make for interesting an provocative captures of the subject. In many cases the subject itself will not necessarily be small but getting close with a wide angle lens can yield some very interesting compositions.

RULES:
--Post up to 7 images but only one image/post
--Include shooting info so we can learn from each other
--Previously posted images are welcome but not previous contest winners
--When posting please do so by hitting the ‘reply’ link below this top post, not the reply link to another post.
--Include a title in the subject line
--Capture must be shot with a Nikon camera and any lens
--Comments are welcome but NO public critiquing, i.e., how to make it better. This is a contest so PM's are a better way to offer feedback
--WARNING Posts that do not meet the spirit of the challenge will not be selected as finalists and may be periodically removed by the moderators without notice

The top images will be selected by the previous months winner and be included in a poll for members to vote for the winning photo. The winning image will be added to the Macro Contest Winners Gallery
