I was going to enter something, but forget it now. Can we start a close up contest, rather than a macro? :lol:

yeah, these guys are ridiculously good at photography. No way I'm dropping one of my preschool photos in here. Wouldn't want to muddy the waters. ;)

Two more days of finals, then I'll break out the camera and see what there is to see. :) Awesome shots so far, everyone!

i here you mass but hey at least it was a good idea.

Oh for sure.. but you should make this thing a bit more official. I have a feeling it's going to be a big hit. You should enforce a few more rules though. Like photo has to be taken this month, open and closing times of the contest, etc. It helps promote more picture taking, rather than people hunting through their photobuckets for their best photos.

Yes also make a rule that says "It has to be your plant".
