We have the results of our ‘Macro / Close Up’ competition. There was an amazing mix of images and subject material for this month’s theme.

Thank you to all the members who entered images and congratulations to our winners! Many thanks to our judge Eileen McCausland.

Macro is extreme close-up photography usually of very small subjects in which the size of the subject in the photograph is greater than life size. Close up is a type of shot that tightly frames an object and shows all the details.
