WINNERS DPR Macro Challenge #29: LADYBUGS

First of all thanks a lot for all the fantastic entries (50 alltogehter)!! There were so many georgeous pictures that it was really really (!!) hard to choose the winners. But it had to be done and here they are:

Honorable mention #3: "Ladybug Face" By Rudiman

Very good detail and a nice capture, Rudiman!

Honorable mention #2: "Ladybug in flight" by Jody Melanson

I've tried to take pictures of bugs in flight myself with little succes and I know how hard that is! The sun shining through the ladybugs wings makes this picture really special! Well done, Jody!

Honrable mention #1: "It's a long journey" by arbil

The framing and the smooth back- and foreground of this picture are just hard to beat and it fits perfectly its title! Great capture, arbil!

And now: The first two places!

2nd place: "redandblack" by M-A-R-K

Really fantastic framing, beautiful and very well satured colors, very good detail and perfect DOF! Congrats of this one, Mark!


1st place: "Mildew Ladybug taking off" by Edwin bont

Edwin, this is one of the very best macro shots I've ever seen! The beautiful colors of the ladybug make it stand out from the rest of the picture! But nevertheless it's the fantastic surrounding and background that make this picture so very special and unique! As someone mentioned in the pbase forum: It looks like something beautiful out of a fairy tale!

Congrats to all the winners!!

Edwin, it's up to you now to take care of the next challenge!
