Challenge has finished
Submit an image that shows scale. So you could submit an image of a small tree against a mountain or a boat against a waterfall. Try and get creative with your subjects- the idea is to show us something we would not think is big/ small and then with the secondary subject surprise us as to how big/ small the primary subject really is. Please do not include any people or animals in the image. For this challenge, the image must be taken AFTER the announcement date of the challenge. Note: Any complaints about the entries, must be submitted ONLY during the submission phase. Once the submission phase ends and voting starts, complaints will not be entertained.

Maximum number of entries in challenge:
A macro image of a tiny 1 Millimeter diameter screw resting infront of a (proportionally) huge 3/8" Inch (10 millimeters) female Spigot (nut). The image has been prepared and captured in an effort to artistically represent a 1:10 scale difference between the sizes of two totally incompatible proportions of the same family of object, hence the emphasis on "Size Does Matter!!".

|Focal length:||16.9 mm|
|Shutter speed:||1/4 sec|
|Notes:||I have found that the large optical zoom point and shoot cameras can become an excellent Macro imaging devices when used with appropriate sized macro diopters or reversed 50mm f1.4 to f/2.0 lenses. It allows you a reasonable working distance from the subject to be able to use the camear's pop-up flash bounced for illumination when needed.|
