Salon 199 - macro

The 199:th challenge is macro. I know that we have had this before, but this time it´s a chance to use focus stacking if you want. If you choose to use stacking please inform us about your camera settings, so those of us that doesn´t how to use it, can learn.
This salon will end midnight Monday 7th of July.

Here's what you do:

1. Either take a picture that matches the nominated theme or select one from your portfolio. You must be the photographer that created the picture in order to enter it.

2. Upload your entry to your FTU user gallery (all entries must be present in an FTU gallery, which you automatically get if you are registered on the FTU forum), so if you aren't registered, you will need to if you would like to join the fun!)

3. Use the gallery IMG code or the 'Post New Thread' Advanced Mode 'My Pics' facility to display your picture in a response to this message. If you are having trouble with this, post a message for some help here and we'll gladly assist. It become easy after a while!

4. Only two entries per salon, please. If you want to withdraw an entry and replace it with another, that's OK, but you must make it clear in the post containing your replacement picture that this is what you intend doing.

5. The decision of the curator at the end of the two weeks is final - don't give him or her a hard time about it; this is just a friendly photo challenge, after all!

6. The person who submitted the chosen picture will assume the responsibility of curator and, as soon as possible, post a message starting a new thread in the FTU Salon board, with details of the new theme. That opening message must include a copy of these instructions, which also double as the rules.

7. The curator can't enter his or her own salon!

I hope for many entries.

Regards,

Bo

As a beginning I have to use these from a few years ago.
If I find time to take some new, I will switch them later 😅

Re: Salon 199 - macro

Wilhelm can I just check the closing date so I don't miss it. It's given as Monday 7th of July. The 7th is a Wednesday according to my diary, so are you looking to Monday 4th or 11th, or will the salon close on the 7th? Sorry to be a pain!!

Jack
