photoblog image From The Competition Folder 14/28

From The Competition Folder 14/28

TRIPLETS

I took this for a macro competition but to be honest it isn't a true macro but more like an extensive close-up.  

There are some lovely memorial plaques on the walls of our local parish church and this little trio is at the base of one of them. This image was recently awarded a Highly Commended in the same Macro competition I mentioned yesterday.

Macro, or not, it is still a fine study, Brian.

Yes not really a macro but very nice none the less
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chris.
I like it too.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Jacquelyn.
Nicely done.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Mary.
Most things that are called macro aren't as are most macro settings on lenses. Still it makes a good picture
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill. Using the modern concept of Macro as demonstrated in the magazines it would be true to say that few, if any, of the entries really met the subject but we had a judge who was happy to judge an what he saw in front of him, what a refreshing change.
Beautifully captured Brian. It certainly deserves the award!
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Richard.
You can fool some of the judges some of the time... Just let them dig a deeper hole for themselves.
Brian Walbey: Indeed Richard, there's one or two I might like to drop in a hole for a while, not ever you understand, I'm not that wicked!
A very nice image of this lovely memorial plaque! Nice job Brian!!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Elizabeth, these little characters are at the bottom of a very large wall mounted memorial plaque to the local "bigwig" family in our parish church.

These often are depicted as having no eyeballs which I can find quite disturbing for some reason. A fine capture regardless.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan. I always find the no eyeballs thing a bit disturbing.
