I'm looking for close up images of an object or subject. Doesn't have to be macro photography but the image should only show part of whatever it is you're photographing. The definition of close up is very much dependent on the size of the subject in this challenge. Images can be cropped but I would prefer as shot! Challenge ends on Saturday 12th May at 9pm GMT. Winner will be announced shortly after.

CHALLENGE RULES:
1. Camera: Any DIGITAL CAMERA is allowed, (not just DSLR)
2. Time: Any on-topic photo taken at any time is eligible, although photos that have won other competitions should NOT be entered.
3. Size: See standard P.O.T.N. Image Posting Rules.
4. Post Processing: Do whatever you like and the host will decide if it works.
5. Posting: ONE PHOTO per photographer in each challenge.
6. Details: Show camera model & lens used. Post brief EXIF data including ISO, shutter speed and aperture used.
7. Commenting: Please, NO COMMENTING DURING CHALLENGE feel free to comment in this thread after a winner is declared.
8. Content: Keep it clean, and both Family and Work safe.
9. Have questions? PM me.
10. Have FUN!

* THE WINNER ALWAYS SETS THE THEME FOR THE NEXT CHALLENGE, POSTS IT AND JUDGES IT - BE PREPARED! A new challenge should be posted ASAP after you have been declared the winner.

"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

Lots of really varied entries this week so thanks to everyone for participating. As always, very difficult to judge these in order but I've decided to go with the following:

Winner: Teekay - I really like the colours in this shot and it's a very interesting subject that suits the close up brief. The black background helps the details to stand out without having anything distracting your attention.

Runner up: Benitoite - Pleasing symmetrical composition and really interesting shapes made by the reflections in the centre part of the glass.

Very difficult to decide this week as there were a number of entries that could have taken the top spot. Congrats Teekay, you're up next!

That's a surprise - I really thought Benitoite was going to take top spot.

Good subject and thanks, shep207, and I'll try and get another up ASAP.
