This month's theme was selected by last month's winner Dan Wiedbrauk.

This month’s contest is Leaves. Many macro photographers capture images of flowers but leaves (the botanical kind) are often overlooked as photographic subjects.

Show us your best macro and closeup photographs of a leaf or leaves. Leaves can captured singly, in groups, or arrangements. There can be other elements in the photograph, but the leaf/leaves should be the main subject.

Please include information regarding your equipment, software, and techniques you used with your posts.

Here are a couple of examples from Dan.

Participating in our monthly contests is a fun way help us become better photographers. We can see and learn from all of the entries as our members showcase their best work each month.

These monthly contests are the preliminary rounds for the Annual Nikonians Photo Contest where you have the opportunity to win attractive prizes and have your images highlighted in the Winners Galleries and published in the eZine.

The top images will be selected by the winner of the previous months challenge and will be included in a poll for members to vote for the winning photo. Please keep in mind that images will be selected based on image quality, subject matter, relevance to the theme, and creativity just to name a few.

The winning image will be added to the Macro Forum Winner’s Gallery. The winner will be recognized in our weekly newsletter and will receive a printable Certificate of Photographic Achievement.

I look forward to seeing how you fulfill this challenge!

Good luck!!!

RULES:
-- Post up to 5 images but only one image per post
-- This is a contest – Please present your best, portfolio quality, work
-- Include shooting info so we can learn from each other
-- Previously posted images are welcome but not previous contest winners.
