To my eyes the Gallery has seen a plethora of simply outstanding quality macro shots over the last few months. Sadly most are lost to the ether as they drop down the pages, so I am thinking lets gather this summers favourites in one place and give them and the site a real showcase.

Usual Pentax/Samsung site rules of course, additionally - shots must have been taken between 1st April 2011 and competition close.

I believe there maybe a few Gallery contributors particualry on this subject who would not normally enter the competitions so let's give them a little encouraging nudge if we can!

Good luck to all, it maybe a competition in name but let's just see your favourite shot - your best of the best Summer 2011.

Just to clarify, is the competition about

* old school macro i.e. 1:1 or greater e.g 2:1
* pictures taken with a macro lens at any magnification
* just any close up 1:1, 1:3, 1:4, 3:1 etc

I know there are many definitions of macro photography out there so just want to check

Congratulations to mecrox, DrOrloff and SteveEveritt for submitting images able to survive the highly detailed,'macro-, verging on micro-, scrutiny' of Dodge69 and to all the other contributors for sharing their technical and artistic prowess

Thanks Sean for the choice of theme and for the thoughtful, constructive and highly entertaining judging
