Mar 30. Supposed to be a reshoot of the first shot for the Tips From The Top Floor workshop. The original flower was looking a little downtrodden and in terribly harsh light, so I cheated and shot this instead.

My room key in my hotel. This is fouled-up on too many levels, including, specifically, the fact that I deleted the real shot and managed to keep the test shot.

Day 31 - This challenge has been good to the last drop, but I hope it's just a drop in the bucket for our future macros :P Now I need to do some commenting catch up (perhaps I'll spread that out over this week).

Thanks everyone for all the fun images and comments and thanks to ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) .

well, I got behind right here at the end. So, you get my last four at one time.

Day 30:

Day 31:
[thumb]664507[/thumb] - the same 'hair light', but the other end, what was left of it. Not only did the light burn out, it exploded. Glass came showering down. Thank goodness I did not have one of the dogs on the the table posing at the time.

This has been one of my favorite side challenges, not only because I like doing macros but because of the quality of the images presented by everyone. Thanks for the fun and see you in the Cooking side challenge!

Sorry gang! Life has gotten in the way of my macro shooting and the lens of life has turned its focus on me for the time being. Nothing to report just dealing with life's major issues. Great shots here in the side challenge. It has been a pleasure to be part of such an exemplary group of macro photographers. Keep up the amazing work.

Day 30 - Last day on the road (600k size here)

By my driveway this afternoon. I have been experimenting with getting unusual point of view shots with the fisheye and the Vivitar 2X macro focusing extender. It lets me focus all the way in until the subject is touching the front element of the lens. The focus can go even more, but things get fuzzy when the point of focus is inside the lens. DOF is short at that close range.

It's been a fun challenge, and thanks for all the thoughtful comments and suggestions. I hope that I have been as much a part of commenting as posting for this challenge as you all have for me. I will be posting a few more comments as I look back thru the shots again in a day or two.
I used the opportunity to experiment and play with some of the gadgets in my bag of tricky and fun lenses that I would have probably not used otherwise.

For the rest of the month, I'll be doing vegetable images. I've been inspired by all the great shots we have seen so far in this SC.
