Agree with Ivoire, some great entries, folks! I dunno if I'll have another to post before closing, but was over at the
hospital last week to have some sutures removed. This is with a little zone focus Olympus XA2 (sibling to the first
pic posted) taken through a tinted glass window:

Thanks Jim. Problem is many of the good moments are fleeting and over before we can grab a camera and capture it.

Creative interpretation, barondla. Great!

Chubasco, great image of someone who has made her occupation of caring.
Hope you are fine btw.

Well, I'm still running slow, but this one is closed out and I'll pick the winner out tomorrow when I have a bit more time :-)

Tried to re-display the photos in this reply but I'm having a slow mental day apparently... Anyways, I would like to thank everyone who put in shots for an admittedly challenging contest category. The winner, because it was touching and special, was Anton's capture of mother and child... Bart's "hands" was a close second though!

Congratulations, Anton!

Congrats, Anton, well-deserved!

Bart, I also liked your hands image. Hope you don't mind, but did a quick and dirty BW conversion:



If you object, will of course take it down with apologies.

Wow. Thanks to RoxnDox and to Chubasco and Ivoire for your very kind congrats.

I will come up with a topic and post a new competition tomorrow.

Congratulations Anton! a well deserved win I think!

chubasco, that is a beautiful b&w conversion! Of course, no objections

I put it up in colour (sort of) because I want to force myself to post something non b&w from time to time


And a Thank you to Jim for an interesting yet difficult theme.

Looking forward to the next instalment...

Thanks for all the kind comments and for everyone who made contest #57 so interesting

Pentax Point & Shoot Competition #58 - Close-up/Macro has been posted in a new thread.

Almost all compact cameras allow us to shoot with a close up focus or macro setting but this can be quite tricky to get good results.
This month lets see what you can do with any subject - flowers, insects, things - but they must be close-ups. Manipulation of image size in PP is also OK so even if your camera has no macro setting you can fudge a good result.

Give it a go!
