If it's Macro I'll cry. Well, I won't, but close enough.

Also, that would be somewhat unfair, as you would be excluding people who do not have a certain type of lens.

Boooring!

Sorry for complaining.
But why did you run a poll in advance when you choose the most average and common photo themes anyway?



Well, I might have a pic with a cloud over the sea somewhere...

Macro technique is not macro lens dependent, I take very good macro's I like, with non-macro lenses too.

We're getting closer!

Yay! There is only really 1 topic that I wouldn't be all that excited about. But it would be a challenge! Streets. . . Cindy

I just voted and see that even after voting the results are hidden. Pretty cool idea keeping the voting honest

This is a perfect example of the tyranny of the majority at work. I mean "Nature and the Environment"... that includes every single thing in front of a lens, right? In fact it would be more of a challenge to try to shoot something that is not in the environment.

Weather... that would be part of Nature I suppose. So would Water. So anyone wanting to shoot those might as well choose the more encompassing category. In fact, we are part of Nature as well, so People falls into that category. Automobiles are as well. And Light... I would like to see someone take a photograph without using light.

There is also a major category confusion going on, between techniques (macro), subjects (people) and aesthetics (black & white).

Oh well, so it goes.

It does require some special equipment to get to 1:1, but this can be as simple as a reversing coupler.

Should it turn out Macro, it's a good excuse to spring for that Macro lens you've been drooling over. You know you want it...
