Smile Macro Challenge #19 - Rust and Paint - time to award karmas :)

The theme for our nineteenth Macro Challenge is Rust and Paint. Enter them as individual subjects or together. I am sure we can come up with lots of new entries. See how close and how creative you can be.

This challenge will run throughout the month of March2009.

You may submit your own original work shot during or before the challenge. I encourage everyone to get out and make some NEW photos for this challenge.

Please post your images in this thread along with any technical information you would like to share such as camera, lens, shutter speed, aperture, iso, lighting conditions, post processing, location, subject details, etc.

At the end of the month, we'll all award karma for outstanding work.

** A gentle reminder that this contest is intended for macro and close up images only. **

Nice photo, sportster. And thanks for "cutting the ribbon" for this challenge.

Have a question that I should know the answer to....how many pics are we allowed to enter here.

I recently acquired a 135 f2.0 lens but used it only once or twice, so I thought I'd use it for this challenge. Unfortunately, its MFD (minimum focusing distance) is 0.9 m / ~ 1.0 foot. So if you think these entries don't qualify for a macro/close-up contest, please let me know and I'll replace them or re-shoot with a macro lens. Thanks.

Btw, all of them were shot at f2.0.
