Weekly Photo Contest: Macro!

It's Wednesday, which means it's time to announce this week's photo contest -- and the winner of last week's flower photography contest. Before I do, I want to congratulate everyone on their awesome entries. We've got some talented iPhoneographer readers here at iMore!

And the winning entry is...

...this gorgeous photo by NSq! What made this photo stand out to me was the unique perspective. NSq also did an awesome job of using the rule of thirds on the focus point making this a very strong composition. Great work NSq!

This week's contest: Macro!

With the end of one photo contest, comes the beginning of new one -- this week we're going to get up close and personal with macro photography! There is no restriction on subject matter. You can photograph bugs, flowers, gadgets, or anything you want. Get creative!

The prize

In addition to a thumbs up from the iMore crew and all of us yelling about how great of a photo star you are, the winner of this week's photography contest will have their photo converted into an official iMore wallpaper and we'll showcase it on the front page of iMore! But that's not all! The winner will also receive an olloclip external lens! This awesome little accessory transforms your iPhone's lens into either a wide-angle, fisheye, or 10x macro lens. I have one. It rocks my world.

The rules

The rules of entry are very simple. The photo must have been taken with an iPhone or iPad (we'll check the EXIF data of the original file to verify) and any edits must have been done with an iPhone or iPad app. No Photoshop CS6! If you have external lens accessories (like an olloclip!), you are more than welcome to use them. You can submit as many photos as you'd like, but remember, this is a contest, so make sure you submit your best work!

Resources

Now, before you run off to take your macro photos, remember that it's not technical skill alone that will claim this prize. Even if you're not the best photographer (yet!), a great eye and a great subject can still get you the win. However, a little help can never hurt, so make sure you check out these articles from our iPhone photography series for some tips.

How to submit

Submitting your photos is easy. Just head over to the iMore Photography Forum and post your photos to the official contest thread. Don't forget to state which apps, if any, you used to edit your photo!

That's it! Now go out and get those beautiful macro shots!

I've been surfing on-line more than 3 hours today, yet I by no means discovered any fascinating article like yours. It is lovely price enough for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made excellent content as you did, the web shall be a lot more useful than ever before.
