Macro - it's Shaggy! Submit a macro photo of something that is shaggy. Definition of shaggy is at: http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/shaggy From the host of this challenge: I strive to bring challenges to the community that are not repeats of my previous challenges. I have strove, tried very hard, to offer challenges that are fresh, new, and unique to my past challenges. It has become more and more difficult to deliver new and fresh challenges that are not repeats of my past challenges, but I consider it a challenge to myself to offer new and fresh challenges to the community that aren't the simple repeats that other challenges often deliver Who am I? I'm a 15 year U.S. Biology Teacher, with a master +30, and a U.S. Scientist (retired). View my photos at: http;//www.piziak.com email me directly at: michael@piziak.com

Processing rules: No restrictions
Capture date rule: No restrictions
Additional rules: Have fun! :) And about Macro Photography: There are *many* definitions of what a Macro photo is. What you think one is, perhaps someone else thinks something else is. For example, one definition of a macro photo is that the final print is larger than life - with this definition, you could take a selfie of your face and buy and place it on a road side billboard - then you're face would be larger than life on the final print! So please consider this - as folks have commented on other people's entries in the past and said, "that is not a macro photo!" Read this article to further understand that there are many definitions of a Macro photo: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Macro_photography Thus I prefer to no longer entertain complaints that something is not a macro - the voters do a good job of deciding this with their votes.
My Best Photo of the Week Did you capture a wonderful photo this week, but there's no current and appropriate challenge to display it? Here is your opportunity to show it to us. Make sure your entry is 1,600px MAXIMUM on its longer side. Please remember that this is a family-friendly site, and enter photos appropriate for everyone to view.
Starts: Wednesday, 02 Dec 2015
Processing rules: SIZE: Longer side of entry, MAXIMUM 1600px. No glaringly obvious HDR or excessive post-processing. TITLE: Give your entry a title or name, not just a file number. NO watermarks or forms of identification, or personal website reference.
Capture date rule: Images must be shot after the announcement date of the challenge
Additional rules: Pictures must contain full EXIF data to verify the correct date of capture. Some software will strip EXIF data during the export stage, or if you 'save for the web' so check the relevant settings in your processing software. Photos accepted in last week's challenge cannot be entered again this week. Go out and shoot another masterpiece. Please participate in voting in the challenge, to counteract the negative, sandbag votes. ENTRIES BY MEMBERS WHO CHOOSE NOT TO VOTE IN CHALLENGES WILL BE DISQUALIFIED. Entrants who cheat by altering the capture date will be banned from 'My Photo of the Week' challenges. Entrants who cheat by sandbagging, vote manipulation, vote solicitation, or with multiple DPR accounts will be banned from my challenges.
