Submit up to three (3) images relating to or displaying the essence of the theme. Once upon a time you needed a bellows and a ring light and a lot of patience to capture very small objects at larger-than-life sizes on film. But with even inexpensive digital cameras, Macro mode lets anyone bring small — even unseen — universes to light. What are your most illuminating up-close or macro shots? The views that invited you to explore the beauty of a whole new (small) world? The judge will be looking for images that interpret the theme in interesting ways that engage the viewer; plus the normal judging criteria of: originality and creativity, photo technique and/or quality, and overall artistic merit.
