Marble dropped (rather thrown) into sand. I had tons of good outtakes on this that were more dramatic and better in focus, but I went with this because all of my others were badly marred by an incidental sand cup (dixie style) that I left to the side and was reflected in almos all of the shots :(. I almost don't want to enter this, but I threw way too many marbles into sand not to enter this challenge.

Absolutely great shot. Not really a macro shot, but amazing in every other way. As a general entry, I would give it a 10.

Bumping up a point for the timing, good capture of a moment in time! (Good title selection too.)

nice photo, but for macro you would have needed to get closer to the subject and focus on 1 spot.
