Creative Filters: Macro

Challenge #1 in the Creative Filters series. Hosted by NZ Scott.
Challenge has finished
Close-up shots taken with the aid of a macro filter or diopter. You are free to enter shots of any kind of subject. You MUST have used a macro filter or diopter to achieve your result. These are special kinds of filters that typically screw onto the end of a primary lens. They are often described as being +3, +5, +10, etc, as a measure of their strength. Photographs taken with multi-element macro filters (eg: Marumi 200, Raynox 150) are fully eligible. You CANNOT have used a dedicated macro lens to achieve your shot. Any entries taken with dedicated macro lenses will be disqualified.
