    Thanks for the votes.

    Bit of a change in fortunes... never had a vote before :)

    I wanted a topic that would allow macro shots.... but be wide enough to allow other interpretations for those that can't do macros.

    Rather than just say 'macro' I've come up with

    Small World

    cue: 'hmm difficult theme this month...wouldn't of chosen that' :rotfl:

    Excellent topic Robert - it leaves a lot to the imagination and should make it possible for everyone to enter. I'm thinking of what shots to take already! :smashin:

    If you think perspective wise Matt then a macro lens isn't as important as it seems :)

    I think it's a great theme. But isn't the theme meant to be one word, not two??
