Great entries all and thank you for participating in this challenge.

Jason C - The Beginning of the End
A very nice macro of a rusty screw.
The stacking turned out pretty well and the remaining DOF is great.
I really like this macro.

Lester Wareham - Nutty Screws & Nuts
I like the idea and it made me laughing.
Screws & Nuts was the theme and your entry fits in perfectly.
I do like the reflexions of the screws and nuts, a fine macro.

John_B - Old Screw
Very fine detail of an old screw in a piece of wood.
A little centered, but the distripution of the sharpness compensates well.
A fine, well composed macro.

Pupsocket - Wrong Bit
Obviously the wrong bit for this small screw.
Great idea and a fine colorful composition.
The reflexion of the screw and bit fit in nicely.
I like your entry.

Davis_S - Bolt Bokeh
I like the small DOF of your Bolt Bokeh.
It's well composed and the colors are great.
Thank you for this fine shot.

It was not easy do decide, all the way great macros.

My favorit this week and the winner of this challenge is Wrong Bit by Pupsocket.
Congratulations to Pupsocket, the next challenge is your's.

Congrats Pupsocket! I was hesitant to even post mine after seeing yours but I took my shot earlier in the week (and almost forgot to post) with the intent of this challenge so I made myself follow through.

Thanks everyone, they were all fine entries! Don't apologize, Lester - I was thinking edible nuts too until I saw yours.

Going out now; will post the next contest later tonight.
