Hi folks,

after much deliberation, soul-searching and black coffee, the subject of this weeks Macro Challenge, which ends at 8pm UK time, is:
COLOUR (or COLOR on the other side of the Atlantic?).
One colour, two colours or more, whatever - it's up to you.

The Rules are:

1. The challenge is just for fun.
2. All images must be taken after the theme is announced.
3. The challenge runs from 8pm on the Sunday and runs until 8pm the following Sunday.
4. Only one upload per member.
5. Please feel free to comment on the entries once judging is complete.
6. The person who hosts is the judge for that week challenge and the judge’s decision is final.
7. The winner gets to create, run and judge the challenge for the following week.
8. Have fun

A reminder that the deadline for your colourful macro shot is tomorrow at 8pm.
It's not exactly colourful here today - grey, driving rain - sheets of it floating above the river in the wind. Magnificent to look at - I must get a waterproof camera......,

There's already a nice, imaginitive selection though Smile

OK folks, time's up. I will go away and deliberate. I have to admit, though, that unless anybody really objects I am so pleased with the photos that I will comment about each.

OK, decision time.

First, the winner is Lumi, so well done, and the runner up Goldfish9.

Comments on each are as follows (in the order that they appear in the gallery, no other sequence is implied):

Cattyal - wonderfully subtle toning colours with interesting textures migrating across. A deceptively simple image. Ive no idea what it is!
Goldfish9 - gorgeous colours with good use of less colourful areas to emphasis them, runner up in my opinion.
Lumi - stunning use of colour, texture and shape repetition, the winner. What is the yellow flower at the front?
Oldblokeh - great, I love the subtlety and symetry, looks 'chromatic' (I mean split light from prisms, stress patterns etc.) - I've no idea what it is!
Jadus - lovely, subtle orange / blue complementaries with subtle surroundings of greys and browns.
Robtaylor - yep, you weren't sure but it was an inspired choice. The background really helps accentuate the colours (but oh dear, our remote controls are not that clean).
JawDborn - I'm particularly fond of stained glass and this is a lovely example. The red / green complementary relieved by the blue background are particularly well-chosen, as is the composition.

Once again, thank you all, and over to you Lumi for the next challenge.

Thanks very much, the petals are all from primroses from the garden, so many lovely vibrant colours! I will be back soon with the next topic.
