Weekly Challenge #95 "Crop a miniature landscape"

Weekly Challenge #95: "Crop a miniature landscape"

This will hopefully challenge your imagination and cropping skills... or it'll fall flat on it's face.
This is something I've done a few times with pictures and I've also done it a couple of times when I've taken the picture with the intention of doing this. I'm going to be looking for those that take the ordinary and make it a scene rather than just an image.
Here's an example of one of mine just to give you an idea, picture is worth a ...etc.






contest will close Tuesday, April 21 (7 days) I will post the judging results Wednesday, April 22

I'm looking forward to seeing what you can come up with.


_____________________________________
The rules are as follows...

1. Post ONE photo (max 1000x1000).
2. The photo must portray an interpretation of the theme. It can be color or B&W, your choice.
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
4. The challenge is interactive. Any response is welcome.
5. The judge will pick the WINNERS and chose 1 of them to be the judge for the next week.
6. This challenge runs for 7 days plus a day for the judge to choose the winners.
7. Any Pentax camera will do or a Samsung DSLR.
8. Pictures can be from any time frame, not just within the week of the current theme.

Now that is a most creative challenge. It has rained here for three SOLID days and moss and fungus are growing everywhere. Who would have thought that I'd be using the rain pants I bought for bike riding in the rain to now be crawling on wet grass hunting minature landscapes.

Welcome to the challenge Pardes, I hope you don't have any leaks in those pants.

Cool idea , just got a 50 macro and thought I was gonna be taking more flower shots to try it out. Question: does mini landscape have to be macro or if we take a shot of lets say a 12 inch rock and make it look like Mt. Everest in the distance would that be considered also?

Perfect theme; you must have been reading my mind! I was strolling through the woods near my house the other day and saw this scene on the floor. Perfectly lit, new shoots coming up through the moss, and just an overall neat scene (IMO).

DA 70mm @ F2.4 | 1/50 | ISO 100

Just to make it clear guys, you don't need a macro. It's all in the composition and cropping.

Very kewl challenge. There's a photograph I've been wanting to take for over a year. It's a tough position to reach. Will use this challenge as the impetus to finally do so.

Mini-mountain range (complete with "cable car wire" to one of the lower peaks - that I didn't notice till cropping).

This is from last summer, when I shot a whole miniature series, this may have been show in this forum before, not sure...

EDIT: this cropped but also a close-up shot in the first place, so may not fully qualify?
