Not sure if I'd call it a macro and the title confuses me. Otherwise, I really like this photo.

way way too much border, and i dont see the macro in this, but the photo does attract my attention. what is it?

wery bad name.... great picture (8)

I don't understand the title. I think the border is too elaborate. It adds to the photo in feel, but takes away attention from the photo itself. I guess I consider it a double edged sword. And finally, I like the photo, but I don't think it is a "Macro" shot.

I don't get the title, and this picture certainly isn't a macro.....but I still love it.

I like the picture a lot -- I don't personally dig that border, and I'm not marking your photograph down just because of what it's surrounded by. :-D

I feel that a macro could best be desribed as taking a photo of somthing in such a manner that you would get the feeling that you were an inch tall. Everything around you that was before so insignificant is not dazzling in it intricacy. The hairs on a leaf, the way sand apears as boulders, or the way an an't has somehow become larger than you. This I don't feel fits what I would consider a macro. I do however absolutaly love This shot It has great color and tones. My eyes wander from one lace to another making this a very exciting photo. Keep up the great work.

A photo this good does not need four frames - 7

Woah a bit over the top on the border, which is a shame cos the photo looks great! I just cant stop being distracted by the border though so I'll have to knock off a few points.

I don't like that big border. But the structure is very nice.

Maybe I'm missing something, but this does't give the appearance of an extreme close up to me. It looks like a huge piece of machinery. And I'm not getting the title reference either. That being said, I think it's a nice photo. I like the color and the focus and clarity are good, lighting really makes the photo. Even though I don't know what this is, it still appeals to me in some odd way. ~Heather~

I really like the tones, but this isn't really a macro, is it?
11/10/2004 02:40:18 PM
too much frame, not enough photo
11/10/2004 12:28:03 PM
I don't understand your title at all.
I'm not sure if all these borders are really necessary.
Nice picture all in all, even if I have no idea what this is.

Interesting industrial picture with good moody lighting, but not really a macro.
11/10/2004 08:08:59 AM
Are those bugs on the floor??
11/10/2004 02:01:13 AM
the frame is a bit over done and the shot isn't really macro or evean close up but it is intrusting

This photo is good. I don't care for the border, and don't understand the title.
