Weekly Macro Challenge - ending 8pm Sun. 16th Aug 2020 - Seeds, pips and stones.

Attention!

This topic is locked.


10 Aug 2020 7:58AM
This week I would like to see your images of seeds, pips and stones. That could of course include nuts. They can be in any state you like... still on the original plant, in the fruit/veg, in packets waiting to be sown or 'recycled' (e.g. in baked goods) - whole or broken. The choice is entirely yours.

Having checked the topic list I can see something similar has been done before, but not for a long time. So I think I'm on safe ground with this one.

So feel free to go nuts with this one this week.  Extra points to anyone who makes me want to jump in and eat their image! 😆

1. The challenge is just for fun.
2. YOUR IMAGE MUST BE TAKEN AFTER THE THEME IS ANNOUNCED.
3. The image must be uploaded in a comment in this thread by 8pm (UK time) on the following Sunday
4. Only one upload per member
5. The person who hosts is the judge for that week's challenge and the judge’s decision is final
6. The winner gets to create, run and judge the challenge for the following week
7. Photos in the thread, no links.
8. Gerrminate some great ideas for me. Then have fun shooting them!


For new participants - please be aware that should you win, you will need to set a new challenge and judge it after 'closing time' the following Sunday.

This week I'm taking a well earned and very much needed holiday, camping in the UK. So please be aware that judging may be a little delayed on Sunday depending on:

1. weather conditions (i.e. I may be out shooting a beautiful sunset 🤞Wink or
2. internet connection (campsites aren't renowned for great internet service).
But I will judge ASAP for you. Thank you in advance for your patience. 😉

Glad to see some entries in already. 🙂

Absolutely no connection to the internet on the campsite. So I'm going to have to book myself in to a pub for a meal tmw evening so I can use their WiFi. The sacrifices I make for you lot - honestly! 😂😂😂

Plenty of time left for anyone who wants to sow their visual, virtual seeds, if you'll forgive the expression!

Falling Seeds

I found some bird seed which we have had for a while. Considered setting up the camera via remote to try and get a photo of birds pecking at it but the weather was not too good so I decided to try and record some movement instead. Smile

There was also the idea of "Sewing my seed" but that's already got me in trouble this year!!! Grin

Agapanthus seed head from last year's garden - the only one we got. It was so beautiful that our 2 year old grandson brought it in for us to share. It has dried out rather nicely.

This image was made with a 1950 Tessar 50mm, the silver version with an amazing round aperture, on a 20mm tube at f5.6. With the exception of the camera, which is only 5 or 6 years old, everything else (tripod, focus rail, tubes) is from the 1960s or earlier. Like me.

Ah, you've got in first, Andrew. Grin I'll still do it, later, but mine hasn't dried out.
