    It is a tie.

    You all win.

    Can I do that? I think I may be one of the worst judges of photos.

    I love Jayson's snowflake shots. I've tried something similar and have yet to get one I really like. Then Zach comes in with some more macro work that I am finding mesmerizing with both great colors, a bit of contrast and detail. Love the low contrast B&W by Patrick. Very nicely done and a slight different twist, a bit of a "1970's" feel to it. Then, great eagle shot by Joel. Looks to have a bit of extra sharpening (clarity/texture/etc) but that just adds to the feeling of potential energy about to be released.

    So, how to decide..... I could see the snowflake on a wall or being used somehow. It is perfectly parallel to the image sensor/focus plane which really stands out. Yep...I am going with it.

    Winner is Jayson and "Snowflake"

    Great photos everyone. Thanks...Brant

    Congrats Jayson! Epic Macro!!!


    thanks for this kind words Brant, i don't have a lot i can take pics of around where i live so i've been putting my focus into Close-up/Macro shots as this opens up my opportunities for my photos.

    Thanks Brant. Yeah, it felt right to back off the contrast with this one. I did the same thing with the color version.

    70's is a good description. I was recently going though some of my 35mm film shots from the early 2000s and guess I was inspired
