My favorite pincusion and glass head micro pins...

I suspect this will not do all that well...and I think we all know why...but atleast it's different right?

This did so much better than I thought it would...I guess there is something to be said for low expectations right?

Getting the right focus was nearly impossible...the "macro" on my camera is rather dismal...but I must say...I like the cranky DOF... : }

Social commentary? ;)

I like this take on the challenge, although some of the foreground elements are a little distracting. I would have maybe placed the focus on a nearer pinhead?

It's very refreshing to see something like this in the macro challenge so thanks for breaking the monotony ;)

7 - Nice, especially in black and white. Would like to see more pinheads in focus though as well as the 'bodies'. Just more 'definition', somewhere.

hahaha love it- yep we do have those on here and everywhere - focus seems to far away but I just love everything else about this image 7

I really like the idea here, more lighting on the right or a backlight set up would have helped from losing detail on the right.

Just an idea to make it a little more interesting.
