Competition 5 - Macro and Open

Our judge for this competition was Dave Sumner. This is Dave's third time judging for our club and he enjoyed our images.

This round's set subject was Macro, defined as:

A form of close-up photography where the captured subject is presented at a ratio of 1:1 or greater. Typically a specialised Macro lens is used, though the result may also be achieved through the use of extension tubes, macro filters, and/or reverse mounting your lens. The aim is to show enhanced details in common subjects that we may otherwise not notice.
