    I thought that it would be fun and inspire creativity if we, the macro community, had some sort of game/contest to play. So here is the idea...I will provide a topic and you provide the images. After the deadline for submissions has expired I will post a poll for voting. The winner will be selected after a couple days and the prize will be awarded via PM. If all goes well another topic will be selected and we will begin the process again.
    :wav:
    **Rules**
    --Images must be MACRO
    --Images must be unique to you
    --Images must be taken after the topic announcement, no old stock
    --Images must be posted in this forum
    --A description of where the image was taken must be included
    --The description must make obvious how your image ties into the topic

    Topics:
    2/25/2010 --> 3/1/2010
    Postal - of or pertaining to the post office or mail service

    Go wild Have fun!:smileys:
    Remember: "Keep it Macro!"

    The prize will be something different each time. Unless someone donates some prizes I will be supplying them. Because I am a poor college student, the prizes will have no real monetary value.

    First round prizes will be My Coke Rewards points. At least enough points to redeem a free 20oz Coke product or 24oz Power-Aid product will be awarded.

    Remember for this round you can include anything involving the postal system. You can photograph stamps, envelopes, mail truck parts, heck you could even photo a brick from the post office building. Really there are many ways to approach this assignment from a macro perspective. So have fun and lets see some entries!

    So, I'm guessing one entry per person, and we submit them to this thread?

    Is it okay if I took the shot literally only hours before reading this thread? If not, I can take the same shot again.

    Yes that is fine as long as you took the image after I posted to topic. Sounds like you did so you are covered.
