#440 - Animals, close-up
Posted By: Vaskebjorn, 11-21-2018, 03:14 PM

I will also try to maintain some sort of continuity. The subject is animal close ups.
I am not necessarily looking for macros. Normally I use my 300mm to get the look.

I will close this on Tue 27th November 2018 Amsterdam midnight. Happy “shooting”

The fine print:
Every week, a new theme is picked and judged by the winner of the previous week.

1. Post ONE photo (max 1024x1024).
2. The photo must portray an interpretation of the theme.
3. Post your single picture in this thread and explain what motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly theme (especially if it's not obvious).
4. The challenge is interactive. Any response is welcome.
5. The judge will pick the WINNERS and choose one of them to select and be the judge for the next week's challenge.
6. This challenge runs for 7 days plus an additional day for the judge to choose the winners.
7. Any Pentax/Ricoh (DSLR) camera can be used as well as P/S cameras.
8. Pictures can be from any time frame, not just within the week of the current theme.
9. In case the winner of a challenge is unable to become the judge for the next challenge, they will PM the #2 winner for that person to be the judge

Some examples

up close and personal

He was only 12 ft. away on the railing but I wasn't scared hiding in the kitchen behind a closed window. It was snowing at the time and he does have some snow on his head.--charliezap
