** DPR Macro Challenge #29 - LADYBUGS **

Hello everyone!

It's my pleasure to host this weeks DPR Macro Challenge #29 "Ladybugs" and to invite all of you to participate!

The new theme is "Ladybugs". Everyone loves them and they are found worldwide with over 4,500 species of different colors and shapes described! They belong to the most beautiful and photogenic bugs you can find out there! So please show me how you managed to capture their entire beauty on a picture!

Of course I know that there have been no ladybugs around in many parts of the northern hemisphere for the last four or five months. But despite of being winter time here I think we shouldn't renounce insects macro challenges. That's why in exception to the previous rules ANY PICTURES TAKEN WITHIN THE LAST 12 MONTHS (NOT JUST WITHIN THE LAST 6 MONTHS) WILL BE ACCEPTED! (sorry babu for changing the rules for this challenge but IMO it's the only way to continue insect challenges during winter time too).

I hope we have lots of participation and entries from as many dpreview.com forums as possible!! Have fun and good luck!!

These Challenges run such that the winner becomes the host/judge for the subsequent Challenge and chooses the theme. The Challenges will therefore be cycled among all the DPR forums, depending on the forum the winner belongs to. I was fortunate enough to be chosen as the winner of MC28 "Hidden Discoveries", so I am responsible to host/judge MC29. The MC29 main thread will reside in the "Canon EOS 300D/350D" Forum -- my dpr "home".

I will try to keep the invite threads visible so that more people are aware of the contest. To help out, I encourage you to add announcements of your submission (say, with a small thumbnail) or with comments on the submissions to your home invitation thread and/or to the main thread.

The general rules for the DPR Macro Challenges are located here:
Key aspects of the rules:

  • "Close up" and macro images only, but macro equipment not required.

  • Entry photos must have been taken within the last 12 months (in exception to the rule for this challenge).

MC29 will run from now until noon (1200) UTC on Monday, Jan 31, 2005.
(We are now out of sync with the prior Thurs to Friday challenge periods.)

All images are to be entered into the PBase galleries:
