***Official BimmerPost Photo Contest #35: Macro Food***

***Official BimmerPost Photo Contest #35: Macro Food***
___________________________________________
RULES:

1. Any interpretation of the theme that falls within Bimmerpost.com rules and the theme is welcome.
2. You must be the person that took the photo. Previous photos are acceptable as long as you are the one that captured the image.
3. One submission per contest.
4. Images must be no larger than 800px in any direction. Links to larger images are allowed but you must have one that is under 800px 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.
**8. Keeping this in mind for the voting thread, each voter will be allowed multiple votes, as one is too selective seeing that skill is based upon different criteria from different eyes.

THEME:
The theme is a "Macro Food,"

I take this as very close up pics of food etc - I'm sure the rules/theme will be clarified by the e90post clan in the following posts!!

IMPORTANT DATES:
Entries must be submitted to this thread no later than Sunday, May 8th, 2011 @ 11:59 CST (*subject to change*). The poll will begin on the following Monday (*also subject to change*).


Good luck.

Hmm, to me, "macro" and "close up" are two different things. Are we going with "close up"? That would be more inclusive. I've got equipment to do true macro, but not everyone does.

wouldn't it be more accurate to call your equipment micro-roni? And do you really think you'll be able to see anything even with a macro lens?

Btw, Paul, thanks for putting this contest up!

True, but they've heard of Sarah Palin. Same cloth.
