Since my thread was getting a little bit large and having consulted with the team I've decided that the rest of 2012's challenge will be completed in this thread (y)

This is the first thread HERE

Thanks to the great support I've had from everyone in that thread it's got so long that it really was time to start a new thread :D

Day 257 - Pink Very Pink

Today I collected a very nice little Sigma 105mm 2.8 Macro so I suspect that you'll be seeing a few macro's in the challenge in the coming days :D

Day 258 - Golden Wonder

Actually these are only pound coins not actually gold coins, but they looked so shiny and new that they looked almost golden and made for a wonderful macro subject for today (y)

You had me worried there seeing your thread locked :eek:

Excellent colour from the coins Matt, were they lit naturally ??
Sorry ;) it was getting a little long as a personal thread, so I had a chat with Marcel and he said it would probably be best to move onto a part two of the thread thread for the last third or so of the year, and to be honest I agree, it's all down to the great level of support I've been getting (y)

Glad you like it :D it's actually lit with my flashgun angled to bounce off the wall to camera right with a slight upward angle to also bounce a little off the ceiling and it came out well and then into PS to tweak the RAW a little (y)

Just sorting out my POTD for today, it was taken at about 4am :D

Day 259 - Wire Wool Wakeup

Nothing like burning up a bit of Wire Wool after a long night in the club to wake you up (y) this was shot over the canal near to Hockley Heath in Warwickshire, even at the silly hour that this was done we still managed to get some funny looks from a passing car :LOL:

You have taken the time out to comment and critique on my photo's so for the past hour I have been going through your thread's, I'm not going to pick a fav, way too many, I'm not even going to try and critique, way too many.

What I will do is list words that came into my head whilst going through:

Inspirational, Amazing, How?, Great Composure, Does he sleep? Emotional, Cool, Nice, Detail, wow, wow, and wow..........

List could go on but keep up the good work, :)

Thanks Matt, that's really appreciated, it's been a long journy so far and I'm still learning each and every day but your comments are very much appreciated, I do sleep I promise, though some times not a lot :(

Interesting picture Matt, how was that done?
Thanks Michael, it was done with my new macro lens, and my laptop screen, laying the screen flat and then putting a drop of water on it, I also put up a blank white screen on my opening up notepad ;)

Thanks Matt, not come across that style before.
It was inspired by a photographer friend of mine and if I can find his version I'll had a link to it as his was amazing, far better than my version (y)
