Here be the place for the macro challenge images.

If there are a few people that want to get involved will switch to a weekly thread to keep it tidy

Will still be picked at random each week but full list of challenges and descriptions can be found here doc Macro List.doc     
 
Picked by Ray

Macro
Week 1

Photograph Your junk drawer

Everyone has a junk drawer......... filled with things we gathered from our comings and goings. We clean them out maybe once a year, but these forgotten treasures come in handy with this challenge! Create a still life composition with the things you wouldn't put together in a million years. Have fun with this!

He's hoarding for future challenges I can see about 6 or 7 Items that he's going to use [rofl]
Feather, game piece, spring, keys, nuts and bolts etc

It's amazing how clean and dust free everyone's junk is, great start everyone.
Have to say the drip of glue on Steve's image really make it, We also now know Phil is a camera hoarder.

Mines just a Place holder hope to get something better tomorrow but it is of junk in junk drawers

Struggled a bit with this, don`t really have a junk drawer, so as it was a macro challenge I thought I would at least do something close-ish with the pegs then no2 is the junk I put on my car, and then no3 some junk on a table.

Like the focusing on that last one Ian, my guess is your making more camera straps?

Got round to taking some more this afternoon first is the junk drawer where all the pens go to die, rest are some keyrings I found in the back of the drawer and thought I'd give the cheap light tent a go, the last one is me trying to replicate the outside/natural light in the light tent as it's chucking it down [bawl]

Week 2
Photograph Oddities

This challenge maybe harder than most – but do yourself a favour and run a quick internet search for the phrase “small oddities” and you'll find some very wild and crazy subjects to shoot. These are especially popular on sites like eBay and Etsy. These oddities could be something as simple as baby teeth in a decorative jar – or something much more, well, odd!
