Challenge has finished
Photography is more than just an art form; rather it also has great importance in science, industry, and government. Submit a photograph that has scientific or technological importance: consider astrophotography, photomicrography, or other photos with scientific, industrial, or technological interest. Just because a photograph has scientific interest, that does not mean that it must not be a striking and memorable image in its own right.

macro lenses, i think, are a lot of fun. they offer the most creative possibilities for one to try! the same is the case with my new 60mm macro lens :) it keeps encouraging me to pick up the camera more and more often :) also, with macro lenses, one does not really have to worry about the light or the subject because more often than not, the subject can be almost anything in your house or the backyard while the light source can be compensated with small torch lights, candles, even cell phones!

|Taken:||Sunday, 4th July, 2010|
|Focal length:||60 mm|
|Shutter speed:||1/80 sec|
|Notes:||the original light was almost as warm as it is now, but instead of turning it blue in white balance or tinting, i chose to proceed with the same warm tone, only adding more to it :) the aperture was set to f/22, anything less was rendering a soft bokeh, which i did not desire. the shot was handheld too, so i chose a shutter of 1/80 and AUTO ISO with spot metering :) the iso, in this case, was 2500 :) pretty clean eh?|
